Reach: Safety Data Sheet Management an Issue for Smaller Companies

Reach: Safety Data Sheet Management an Issue for Smaller Companies | REACH Regulation | Scoop.it

of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) will be affected. As the first registration phase focused on substances produced or imported in high volumes, smaller companies have not been as involved in the Reach process as some of the larger companies. However, this is about to change. SMEs will have to become more involved in Reach, and most will have little experience of the Reach process. Most likely, they will also have less budget and fewer resources to handle the complexities and administrative challenges involved.

El reglamento REACH regula los productos químicos de Europa.

Por la UE pasan todas las sustancias químicas que se producen en el mundo. Por lo tanto regulan al final el comercio global de estos productos.

Su objetivo es alcanzar un equilibrio: busca proteger el medio ambiente y un libre comercio de estos productos. La página a la que nos manda este enlace nos permite ver diversas normativas del reglamento. Por ello considero no solo dicha página, sino todo el reglamento en sí, una normativa esencial que no promueve el enriquecimiento, sino la protección del medio ambiente y su comercio.

Free Webinar - REACH Compliance for (M)SDS Delivery

Free Webinar - REACH Compliance for (M)SDS Delivery | REACH Regulation | Scoop.it

REACH has changed the rules regarding the way Safety Data Sheets, (M)SDS, are delivered. Companies involved in importing, manufacturing and distributing chemicals to and within the European Union will need to ensure the direct delivery of (M)SDS and associated documentation to their customers. They are also responsible for keeping these documents, and their customers, up to date in the event of any changes or clarifications. Achieving compliance in this area is a major administrative challenge and could also prove incredibly costly; and because (M)SDS are needed at every stage of the supply chain, this issue will impact thousands of companies!

 

If you have spent time getting the content of your (M)SDS right it is just as important to ensure you are delivering the document in compliance with REACH!

 

This free webinar from REACH Delivery International will show you how to become and remain compliant with REACH legislation in the delivery and management of (M)SDS.

Traditional methods of sending Safety Data Sheets may not be compliant under REACH!

If you are currently looking at sending Safety Data Sheets by email or an e-mailer system then consider ‘Are you really REACH compliant?’

■ Email does not guarantee or record proof of delivery and does not monitor the status and confirm successful delivery of the Safety Data Sheets.

■ Post has the same problems as emails and both incur significant time and costs in administration and management.

■ And there are no audit capabilities, sufficient to demonstrate compliance or to provide protection in the event of legal action.

REACH Delivery will allow you to comply with REACH by managing and auditing your sending, receiving and distribution of Safety Data Sheets.

Don't gamble with being REACH Compliant when delivering (M)SDS!

Don't gamble with being REACH Compliant when delivering (M)SDS! | REACH Regulation | Scoop.it
REACH has changed the way Safety Data Sheets are delivered to your customers.

■ Email does not provide guaranteed delivery, nor proof of delivery and obviously does not physically replace old, out of date versions of an SDS. Although email is free, it is also expensive to administer.

■Post has the same problems as emails, and is expensive with postage and administration

■Placing documents onto a website or a catalogue will not suffice as it provides no proactive delivery and is already rejected by REACH


If you have spent time getting the content of your SDS/MSDS right it is just as important to ensure you are delivering the document in compliance with REACH.

Esta noticia habla sobre el Reglamento REACH: reglamiento para el registro, evaluación, autorización y restricción de sustancias químicas. Tiene como objetivo, entre otros, mejorar y promover el uso seguro de los productos químicos. De esta forma, se pretende asegurar la salud y la seguridad de cualquier persona involucrada con los productos químicos y proteger el medio ambiente. 

La legislación, mediante este reglamento, otorga mayor responsabilidad a la industria para gestionar los riesgos que, los productos químicos empleados, pueden ejercer sobre la salud y el medio ambiente. No solo se aplica a la industria, sino a toda la cadena de suministro: fabricantes e importadores (a través de los distribuidores, organizadores de trasfortes y almacenamiento) y los usuarios intermedios.

REACH - This is no time to relax!

REACH - This is no time to relax! | REACH Regulation | Scoop.it

While few could deny the importance of the REACH regulation in promoting and ensuring the safe use of chemicals, many would agree that it is one of the most complex pieces of legislation to impact importers of chemicals to and within the EU. Therefore, achieving registration successfully would not just have been a major milestone, but also the accumulation of many months of hard work. 


However, even with registration over, there is no time to relax. There are other important considerations and changes under REACH that will impact these companies and these need to be addressed now. One major consideration is the new rules and changes involving the delivery of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) to customers in Europe.
