This book discusses the law and practice of the European Unions new chemical regulatory programmes known under the acronym REACH. REACH is intended to ensure the safe management of risks associated with chemical substances throughout the supply chain. Its scope is very broad; subject to limited exceptions, REACH applies to all bulk chemicals used in industrial processes and to chemicals present in products such as cleaning products, paints, clothing, furniture, and electrical appliances. The newly established European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), the Commission, and member state authorities are in charge of administering the various parts of the REACH Regulation, creating a complex patchwork of government powers, procedures, and oversight.The volume is written by experienced REACH practitioners. It addresses both the key legal regulatory issues associated with REACH and the key management and practical challenges. In addition to analysing the scope, the processes, and the obligations of the industry under REACH, the book covers the strategy and management of REACH compliance from the perspective of the regulated entities. The focus is on the strategic and practical decisions facing companies subject to REACHs variousregimes. Significant attention is paid to REACH consortia, which are a key instrument in compliance management, and to the competition law issues arising in connection with REACH consortia. It also covers legal remedies, enforcement, intellectual property rights, and civil liability for damages arisingfrom chemical substances as well as how companies can shape their REACH compliance programme to reduce their liability exposure.The implementation status of the GHS in countries around the world is available at alt;http://www.unece.org/trans/danger/publi/ghs/implementation_e.htmlagt; ( accessed 19 January 2013). 107 For a more detailed comparison, see ECHA, anbsp;...
