The article discusses the impact of Reach chemical and environmental law on the supply chains of the chemical industry in Europe. Waves of change, beginning in 2007 and continuing for several years, will influence supply and value chains, not only within companies, but also with suppliers and customers, both in and outside the chemicals sector, thus influencing the market position and profitability of companies even beyond the pure chemicals players, the authors said.
