We’re all in a hurry – trying to get things done in less time without cutting too many corners. It’s true both at home and work, where we want to get the non-essentials out of the way so that we have the time to do the things we want to do.

Sometimes we just need a shortcut. Which is why this 60-Second Guide to REACH is such a find. Check out the link for a quick overview of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation (and restriction) of Chemicals (REACH) regulations, which were adopted in December 2006, and came into force across European Union (EU) Member States on June 1, 2007.

For more in-depth coverage of REACH, check out our articles “REACH: Industry Prepares for Another EU Regulatory Tidal Wave,” “REACH Requirements for Adhesives Manufacturers and Users,” “REACH 101,” and “REACH: How it Affects PSA Tapes,” or do a search for “Reach” on our Web site.
