The European 'REACH' Regulation N°1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals entered into force on 1 June 2007. While setting new rules for the management of chemical substances, REACH leads to the need for more communication between customers and suppliers on the substances, preparations and articles they buy and sell.
Given the new legal requirements, Orgalime has developed a model letter for structuring communication between companies of Orgalime’s industries and upstream suppliers on pre-registration and registration of substances on their own, in preparations or in articles.
While Orgalime’s model addresses as many as possible areas on which information exchange would be essential considering the different fields of activities and perspectives of engineering companies, the model is fit for being adapted by engineering companies according to their individual portfolios and needs.
