REACH Registration final deadline: 21,551 chemicals on EU market registered by 31 May 2018 | June 2018

31 May 2018 marked the end of the 10-year period for registering existing chemicals under EU's Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). 13,620 European companies have submitted information to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) on 21,551 chemicals manufactured or imported in the EU and EEA at above one tonne a year.

The REACH registration process closed the knowledge gap that existed prior to the regulation on the number of chemicals on the EU market, their uses, their hazards and their risk management. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) checks the information coming from registration dossiers for both completeness and compliance with the registration requirements, and the data is used for the establishment of a complete database that is accessible for free to everybody for consultation of non-confidential information.
