The author discusses the importance of computer software to help the compliance of chemical companies to Reach chemical law. To make an educated decision, manufacturers will need to develop or outsource a single repository that can automatically gather and house data from disparate systems. This will allow the Reach coordinator to cross-reference their products, substance by substance, to assess which chemicals are impacted and the effect of substitution, the author said.
