The REACH Regulation is Europe’s overarching chemicals legislation and one of the most complex and multi-faceted pieces of legislation in the Union’s history. REACH addresses the manufacture, import and use of chemicals and impacts not only EU companies but also those around the world, either directly or indirectly.
If you manufacture or import in to Europe a substance in a quantity greater than 1 tonne/year then you are likely to need to Register that substance. There are a number of key dates and alternative approaches to Registration that the Yordas Group can help you with to find the most appropriate and effective route through this process.
Our REACH consultancy services can support your work at any and every stage of the process. Our regulatory consultants are supported by experts in chemistry, nanomaterials, toxicology, ecotoxicology, environmental fate and exposure/risk assessment.
The Registration process applies to companies manufacturing or importing substances at or above 1 tonne/year. Since 2010, Yordas has successfully submitted Registrations for a wide range of substances including UVCBs, multi-constituent substances, inorganics, organics and metals. Our regulatory consultants work very closely with our scientific experts throughout the Registration process on:
If you need to Register a substance, we can support with specific tasks or manage the entire process for you.
Our fully comprehensive service includes initial setup, preparation and submission of Registration dossiers, issuing compliance certificates and management of all formal communication with ECHA and Member States, giving you supply chain flexibility and the confidence that your European customers are being supported as thoroughly as possible.
We can act as TPR for your company, representing you in all matters associated with data sharing, allowing your company to remain anonymous up until the point of submission. Additionally, we can carry out substance sameness checks and advise on and conduct negotiations on data sharing and working arrangements where necessary.
We can help your company identify the best strategy towards REACH compliance and the likely cost of doing so. For example, if you need to evaluate the potential cost associated with importing a range of products from a non-EU supplier, then our consultants can help you to determine the best strategy towards Registration and identify the costs on a substance by substance basis.
