Lawyer Sanders says European Chemicals Agency will regulate chemical substances in EU with tough new standards.

The European Chemicals Agency is located in Helsinki, Finland, and the agency will manage the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction processes for chemical substances to ensure consistency across the European Union. These REACH processes are designed to provide additional information on chemicals, to ensure their safe use, and to ensure competitiveness of the European industry.    

The European Chemicals Agency started operating on 1 June 2007. The Agency’s mission is to ensure consistency in chemicals management across the EU and to provide technical and scientific advice, guidance and information on chemicals.
