6.5.2 Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH)
The Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (European Commission, 2006a) (REACH) Regulation is the main European Regulation regarding chemicals. The main objective of REACH is for all chemicals used in Europe to be registered and evaluated before use. The most harmful chemicals can only be used with official authorisation. In most cases, VELUX A/S will be considered a downstream user of chemicals, which means it is obliged to provide information about chemical substances on the so-called candidate list.
