The Purpose of Preregistration

After the preregistration (Jun. 1 - Dec. 1, 2008), the main registration proceeds in phases until 2018, according to volume and hazardousness. If the preregistration fails to be implemented, export is restricted from Dec. 1, 2008 until the main registration. So, the preregistration is implemented to receive a grace period for registration.

The Purpose of Preregistration

Overview of REACH

As the acronym of Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals, REACH is a regulation on managing chemicals [Regulation (1907/2006/EC)] that stipulates the registration, evaluation, approval, and restriction of all the substances in minimum 1 ton that is manufactured in or imported into EU and was introduced in June 2007, for the purpose of protecting people's health and the environment from the use of chemicals and strengthening the competitiveness of the industry in EU. With the agency for producing and registering the hazardousness data lying not with the state but with the substance manufacturing business, the regulation pursues "No data, no market", blocking the entry of a substance into the market if its maker fails to prove its safety.
