How REACH has helped the coatings industry

Monday, 21 March 2011 | Posted by: Kirsten Wrede, European Coatings Journal

It’s very true that Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of CHemicals (REACH) is probably one of the most used terms for the chemical industry - and also true that it could be nominated for the award of the most negative buzzword of recent years.
However, I firmly believe that REACH polices have benefited our industry. They have meant a reduction in animal testing and a more structured system, which can only benefit us moving forward.

We were very quick off the mark when REACH began implementing regulations. It helps us to be a responsible manufacturer and to do the right things by our customers.  This approach will help to promote the long term development of the chemicals industry by encouraging innovation, responsible risk management and environmental protection. REACH will drive higher standards in the coatings industry and I’m 100 per cent behind this.  Embracing it will help drive the competitiveness of the EU chemical industry.
