The article discusses issues on the impact of the registration, evaluation and authorization of chemicals (Reach) compliance on the chemical industry. According to the author, the major impact of Reach will be felt by small manufacturing companies with limited technical resources, importers into the European Union (EU), non-EU manufacturers and their exporters, and the industry's downstream users. He adds that confidentiality will plague the Reach scene, and potentially damage many businesses.
