REACH Compliance

REACH is the European Union's regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. REACH affects the chemical industry and all users, including a large part of Europe’s industry and retail businesses.

Univar has been involved in the REACH process for several years including working with the FECC, a European association of the chemical distribution and trading industry, as well as local industry federations to develop more practical and effective legislation. We will continue to push for its efficient implementation.

By helping to define the rules, Univar is uniquely placed to monitor, advise and manage REACH compliance for our customers.

We are in permanent consultation with our suppliers regarding joint support for the products we will deliver under REACH. Our goal is for all of the products we distribute to be carried through the REACH registration process. We will guide our customers at each step, in close partnership with our suppliers, to ensure that compliance with REACH can be managed effectively and smoothly.
