European Union REACH Registration

The full name of the EU REACH regulation is "Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals", which is the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. It is the European Union's regulations for the preventive management of all chemicals entering its market. The EU REACH regulations came into effect on June 1, 2007, and began to be implemented on June 1, 2008.

According to the EU REACH regulations, companies need to submit registration to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for chemical substances (substances themselves, substances in mixtures or substances intentionally released in articles) whose annual production or import volume exceeds 1 ton in the EU, otherwise the company will not be allowed to continue to manufacture, import or sell the chemical within the EU. In addition, the regulations for some registered substances also stipulate the obligation to continue to perform evaluation, notification/authorization, and restriction.

In May 2018, Jinghong successfully registered for REACH of 1,000-ton glutaraldehyde, becoming the first glutaraldehyde supplier in China and the fifth in the world to have REACH registration.
