What does REACH stand for?
“REACH” stands for “Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals.” It is a regulation by the European Union to ensure the safe use of chemicals throughout the EU. The law requires manufacturers and importers of chemical substances to evaluate the risks associated with their service and to register them with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
Why Test for REACH Compounds?
REACH aims to protect human health and the environment from potential chemical hazards. Pharmaceuticals play an essential role in ensuring a high level of public health. However, the use of drugs in human and veterinary medicine has increased their concentrations in many environmental reservoirs, such as soils, sediments, and water bodies, in the past 20 years. The largest source of pharmaceuticals entering the environment is their use and disposal.
Don’t leave the safety and compliance of your products to chance. Our REACH compounds testing service will help you succeed in the EU market.
Analysis of REACH Compounds is recommended for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
What We Can Do For You
At Southern Scientific, we can determine trace quantities of a REACH-regulated compound (4-tert Octylphenol ethoxylate detergent and its degradants) in wastewater.
With our ICP MS, GC, GC MS, GC- MSMS and LC-MSMS capability, we are well equipped to research trace elements of pharmaceutical actives, metabolites, and other residues.
