REACH Compliance Testing

Our experts will help you develop a strategic approach to REACH compliance

About the REACH regulation in the European Union

REACH is an EU regulation that covers most consumer products, and it requires companies to report on chemicals used throughout the supply chain and in their products. REACH stands for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals.

REACH is broad in scope and affects the whole supply chain including companies based outside the EU. REACH compliance requires strategic planning as it asks industry to account for compliance throughout the supply chain. Comprehensive REACH testing is a way to demonstrate compliance.

REACH compliance allows companies to:

  • Prove they are safeguarding human health and the environment
  • Access the EU market
  • Avoid regulatory fines and litigation
  • Save money and time testing in-house
