The new European regulation, REACh (Registration, Evaluation & Authorisation of Chemicals) came into force from June 1st, 2007. It is just that - far-reaching - and will have significant effects on all chemicals made or imported into Europe, as well as on articles, if any chemicals migrate from such articles.
