REACH is the acronym for regulations governing the registration, evaluation, authorization, and restriction of chemicals. These regulations stipulate that the single system for registration, evaluation, and authorization of chemicals must provide information on chemical-related risks and how those risks are to be controlled throughout the production chain.
These regulations are directly linked to the regulations on Classification, Labeling, and Packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP). These regulations specify the hazard statements, caution statements, and pictograms that must be used to warn of the hazards of chemical substances and mixtures and how people must be informed of those hazards.
Hazardous substances or mixtures must be labeled such that workers and consumers are aware of their effects before using or handling them.
