The European Commission launched on 29 October 2003 its proposal for a new chemical legislation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). In 2006 the Nordic Chemicals Group granted funds to the Nordic Product Register Group to start a joint Nordic project on "The Nordic Product Registers and the future REACH substance database. Comparison of the registration systems and options for future developments". The objective of the project was to clarify the extent of overlap between REACH substance database and the Product Registers and characterize the added value of the Nordic Product Registers. The REACH substance database and the Product Registers are different systems. These differences are compared and discussed in this report with proposals for use of Product Register information in the implementation of REACH.

Summary

A new European Chemical Legislation will enter into force in summer 2007. The requirements on Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) will be directly applicable in all Member States of the EU. Under the REACH system, manufacturers and importers of substances (as such or in preparations) will have the duty to submit a registration dossier to the Chemicals Agency in Helsinki and to update the information in case relevant changes occur.
