The reach regulation deals with the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemical substances. Reach also includes standards for users of chemicals, which has not been the case in previous legislation.
The RoHS Directive aims to reduce risks to human health and the environment by replacing and restricting hazardous chemical substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The directive will also improve opportunities for the profitable and sustainable recycling of waste from electrical and electronic equipment. RoHS stands for Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
When goods become waste, the presence of hazardous substances may make the waste unsuitable for recycling. The EU has a goal of non-toxic materials cycles. To further this goal, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has created the SCIP database where suppliers of articles are required to notify the presence of particularly hazardous substances in the articles. This information is then made available throughout the life cycle of the articles, including at the waste stage. The regulation forms part of the Waste Directive 2008/98/EC. It came into force on 05 January 2021.
