ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the cost associated with the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) legislation implemented by the European Commission. According to the British Chemical Distributors and Traders Association, the cost of REACH will increase more than the proposed amount. A survey conducted by KPMG reveals that 40% of companies are not aware about REACH.
