ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the lack of awareness among the U.S. chemical firms about the obligations required to fulfill under the European Union's (EU) program for Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (Reach). Under Reach, during the pre-registration period, foreign firms exporting to the EU must pre-register any of some 30,000 substances that are shipped to Europe as chemicals. If exporters to Europe fail to pre-register the items, then the items will be barred from the EU.
