  3. Reach law requires chemical safety

The new Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (Reach) legislation, which came into effect this month, places greater responsibility with those using chemicals to ensure that they are safe, it has been claimed.

In a development which may interest those considering chemical-resistant personal protection equipment, Walaiti Rathore, of Nottingham-based legal firm Berryman said that the Reach laws are intended to improve the safety of chemicals, Farmers Guardian reports.

'The law requires manufacturers, importers, distributors and professional users who market or use chemicals, to ensure that the chemicals are registered with the European Chemicals Agency,' he told the site.

According to the UK's Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Reach rules are likely to affect most businesses in Europe and will be able to comply with their new duties/

To help those to whom the new rules apply, the HSE has launched a new website to provide comprehensive information to ensure people fully understand their responsibilities.
