Reach and the Recycling of Plastics

Reference manual for an appropriate implementation of the REACH requirements for the operators of recycling plants.

The European Regulation 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) interfaces with waste legislation at various points, but forms a freestanding, demarcated legislative domain: came into effect on 1 June 2007.

This reference manual is intended to describe the most important aspects and regulations for plastic recyclers, and provide the reader with guidance on how successful REACH implementation can be carried out in one’s own organisation.
