REACH - a mixture of feelings included

REACH is one of the most used terms for the chemical industry - and could be nominated for the award of the negative buzzword of several years – it’s just a question of who you ask in the companies. I have quite controversial feelings about the REACH policy. On the one hand the question is not whether I want to be in touch with toxic or dangerous materials and I don't simply know the impact of special substances even in the smallest concentration in coatings and materials. On the other hand I don’t have a clue about some substances if they really harm me. So there is a feeling left that the reaction to set up such a huge regulation, including lots of manpower over years, seems to be exaggerated.
