REACH Protocol Compliance REACH aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the properties of chemical substances. This is done by the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals. The REACH Regulation places responsibility on the industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on the substances. The Regulation also calls for the progressive substitution of the most dangerous chemicals when suitable alternatives have been identified.
