ECHA offers REACH aid to companies
The European Chemicals Authority (ECHA) has issued several online initiatives to help companies battling with the demands of the EU Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) regulation. They include: pre-submission information sessions; a list of substances identified for registration in 2013; a report on the experiences of successful REACH registrants; and an inventory of chemicals on the EU market. REACH covers agrochemical intermediates and co-formulants. Recent concerns have highlighted the burden it presents in the current economic crisis ( Agrow No 631, p 9).
