REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals.
REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
