REACH - Testing and advice - Identification of a company's legal obligations under REACH

Identifying the role or roles of a company in the supplier chain and fulfilling the legal obligations under REACH can be a difficult task.

The duties and obligations under REACH depend on:

  • Whether the product is a pure chemical substance, a chemical mixture or an article
  • Where the company is positioned in the supplier chain
  • The hazards of the chemicals in the product
  • The amount of hazardous chemicals in the product

Danish Technological Institute can:

  • Identify a company's obligations under REACH
  • Determine how hazardous it is to use the product and the risks arising from the chemical composition
  • Advise on the status and use of candidate substances (SVHC)
  • Advise on classification and labelling of chemical substances and mixtures in relation to the CLP Regulation
  • Advise on and prepare supplier declarations.

How does REACH affect companies?

  • All companies that produce, import (to the EU) or use chemicals in amounts > 1 ton/year have obligations under REACH.
  • Importers (to the EU) and distributors of articles that contain > 0.1 weight percent of substances of very high concern also have obligations under REACH.

An article is: an object that during production is given a special shape, surface or design, which determines its function to a greater degree than its chemical composition - i.e., goods in general.

Substances of very high concern are: substances that are carcinogenic, mutagenic, reprotoxic, persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic and/or have endocrine disruptive effects - and that are included in the candidate list of the REACH Regulation.
