REACH

The new European REACH legislation, and the impact it has on the future availability of chemicals, is an issue of vital importance for Berk Kimya, our customers and the entire global chemical industry.

As a major supplier, importer and purchaser of chemical substances in the European Union (EU), our first priority is to comply with the REACH regulations, as well as to ensure the supply of goods to us and our customers is not disrupted. Berk Kimya teams are in place and committed to cooperating with our customers and suppliers to support the successful implementation of REACH. This includes coordinating the exchange of information across the supply chain within from suppliers and manufacturers to customers and end users.

Our organization, including our operations based in Europe, Asia, the U.S. or other geographies, is committed and prepared to support the implementation of REACH as an effective legislation in the spirit of which it was designed to protect human health and the environment by providing information across the supply chain supporting the safe use of chemicals and chemical substances.

What is REACH ?

REACH is the new European Community regulation governing the "Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals". It came into force on June 1st 2007 and replaces multiple European directives and legislation with a single regulation.

Its primary aim is to protect human health and the environment.

REACH will have major impact on the entire chemicals sector since manufacturers and importers of chemical substances made in or imported into the EU in annual volumes of 1 ton or more must register them with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
