Ensure compliance to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) regulations, a requirement for all chemical products that are used in industrial processes and consumer products imported or manufactured in the European Union market, with Element’s REACH testing services.
REACH regulations were enacted to achieve the goal of protecting human and environmental health. For substances manufactured or imported with quantities from 1 to 100 metric tonnes per year, companies must first compile information regarding the uses, properties, potential risks, and hazards, and then submit registrations to the ECHA. Our consultative teams are equipped with the instrumentation, scientific expertise, and regulatory knowledge to develop quantitative analytical methods and risk assessments needed for REACH registration submissions for chemical substances and products that meet the standards set within regulations.
Element’s REACH compliance solutions include both chemical characterization and risk assessment services. Chemical characterization, including identification and impurity testing, as well as sameness and physicochemical testing, determines what, if any, impurities exist in a chemical formulation, in addition to the chemical make-up of the substance. Risk assessments are critical to determining the safety of chemical substances according to their intended use, as they evaluate how exposure to chemicals will impact the end user of the product.
