The risks that can be posed by chemicals to the human health and the environment causes significant, long-term and complex issues e.g. Heavy metal toxicity, endocrine disruption etc.
Various national & international agencies e.g. CIB, EPA, ECHA, REACH etc regulates the production and distribution of commercial and industrial chemicals, in order to ensure that chemicals for sale and use do not harm human health or the environment. This requires necessary testing to produce data on health, safety and exposure. REACH is one of the most complex chemical regulations in the world and compliance can be difficult to achieve.
REACH encompasses almost all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes but also in day-to-day lives, e.g. in cleaning products, paints as well as in articles such as clothes, furniture and electrical appliances.
