BAUA Releases Guide on REACH for SMEs

February 17, 2015

The German Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAUA) has published the first part of a guide which aims to assist small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in completing the REACH registration process for substances of less than 100 tonnes/year. The deadline for registration is on May 31, 2018.

The document specifically addresses companies with little or no previous experience with REACH.

Part A includes dossier preparation and identification of substances under REACH. The succeeding guides, Parts B and C, are to include the creation of registration dossiers and extended registration requirements. These next documents are expected to be published in the middle of this year.
