Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and restriction of CHemicals
The REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and restriction of CHemicals) establishes a single regulatory framework for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization or Restriction of chemicals produced, imported, used in the EU and therefore also exported, through the assessment of their intrinsic properties and the adoption of appropriate risk management measures, in order to avoid harmful consequences for human health and the environment.
The whole process is subject to the supervision of the European Chemical Agency – ECHA – and of the competent Authorities of the Member States.
It is a measure aimed at protecting human health and the environment from the dangers arising from the mismanagement of chemicals used in industry, and at “replacing substances of major concern with less hazardous substances or technologies”.
A REACh and MRSL compliance tool
SAFER LEATHER CHEMICALS HUB
In order to protect the industrial and intellectual property of the formulations related to the chemical auxiliaries produced by the chemical tanning companies, the database LEATHER CHEMICALS INVENTORY is available.
It makes available to those who request directly to the chemical company, in a transparent but voluntary and secure way, the sensitive data of the chemical products for tanneries.
LEATHER CHEMICALS INVENTORY synchronizes the chemical inventory of substances and mixtures used for the production of tanning auxiliaries with the ZDHC lists for MRSL and ECHA lists for REACh, to identify hazardous or undesirable substances:
LEATHER CHEMICALS INVENTORY is linked to any other portal to provide evidence that products uploaded to the database are compliant with the various MRSLs.
