REACH in the EU aspires to create "the most comprehensive chemicals database in the world." The legislation came into effect on June 1, 2007, and applies to chemicals manufactured or imported into the EU/EEA in annual quantities of 1 tonne or more. REACH aims to ensure that chemicals placed on the European market do not adversely affect human health or the environment. Under REACH, manufacturers or importers must register chemicals with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). ECHA, working with member state competent authorities, is responsible for the technical administration of REACH and evaluation of chemical safety.
