Sabinsa Corporation today announced its successful pre-registration for REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), a European Community legislation implemented to regulate chemicals and their safe use. By pre-registering prior to November's deadline, Sabinsa's ingredients are assured market presence and availability in all 27 European countries plus Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein.
REACH regulations allow only pre-registered substances to be sold after November's submission deadline. Non-pre-registered substances will be treated as new chemicals and will not be allowed on the market without full registration.
"In an age where there is increased need for manufacturer transparency, product safety and consumer awareness, Sabinsa continues to exceed regulatory requirements and remains committed to ensuring our chemical offerings are safe and effective in improving human heath," said Shaheen Majeed, Sabinsa Corporation marketing director. "By completing all necessary pre-registration, Sabinsa Europe will be able to continue to supply its customers with no disruption."
