REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals.
REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.
In principle, REACH applies to all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes but also in our day-to-day lives, for example in cleaning products, paints as well as in articles such as clothes, furniture, and electrical appliances. Therefore, the regulation has an impact on most companies across the EU.
REACH places the burden of proof on companies. To comply with the regulation, companies must identify and manage the risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market in the EU. They have to demonstrate to ECHA how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users.
If the risks cannot be managed, authorities can restrict the use of substances in different ways. In the long run, the most hazardous substances should be substituted with less dangerous ones.
How does REACH work?
REACH establishes procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances.
Companies need to register their substances and to do this they need to work together with other companies who are registering the same substance.
ECHA receives and evaluates individual registrations for their compliance, and the EU Member States evaluate selected substances to clarify initial concerns for human health or for the environment. Authorities and ECHA’s scientific committees assess whether the risks of substances can be managed.
Authorities can ban hazardous substances if their risks are unmanageable. They can also decide to restrict a use or make it subject to prior authorization.
REACH’s effect on companies
REACH impacts a wide range of companies across many sectors, even those who may not think of themselves as being involved with chemicals.
In general, under REACH you may have one of these roles:
Manufacturer: If you make chemicals, either to use yourself or to supply to other people (even if it is for export), then you will probably have some important responsibilities under REACH.
Importer: If you buy anything from outside the EU/EEA, you are likely to have some responsibilities under REACH. It may be individual chemicals, mixtures for onwards sales or finished products, like clothes, furniture or plastic goods.
Downstream users: Most companies use chemicals, sometimes even without realizing it, therefore you need to check your obligations if you handle any chemicals in your industrial or professional activity. You might have some responsibilities under REACH.
Companies established outside the EU: If you are a company established outside the EU, you are not bound by the obligations of REACH, even if you export their products into the customs territory of the European Union. The responsibility for fulfilling the requirements of REACH, such as registration lies with the importers established in the European Union, or with the only representative of a non-EU manufacturer established in the European Union.
REACH is a European Regulation and is an acronym for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals. The overall aims of REACH are to:
Provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals
Allow free movement of substances on the EU market
Enhance innovation and the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry
Reduce animal testing by promoting the use of alternative methods of assessing chemicals
REACH entered into force on 1st June 2007 and replaced a large number of European Directives and Regulations in a single system.
Caution! – LiPo Batteries
In order to prevent the LiPo Battery from possibly occurring leaks, overheating, swollen, please note the preventive measure.
Handling Precautions and Guideline:
When charge please select the LiPo Battery special battery charger.
Strictly prohibits inverting the cathode use LiPo Battery.
Strictly prohibits directly connecting LiPo Battery to power source plug
Please do not throw the LiPo Battery into water or put it into the heater
Strictly prohibits plunging the LiPo Battery in seawater or water, when LiPo Battery does not use, please store LiPo Battery in a cool dry environment.
The prohibition in strong static electricity and strong magnetic field place use otherwise is easy to destroy the LiPo Battery PCBA
The prohibition puts the LiPo Battery nearby the hot high-temperature source, like the fire, the heater, and so on use and leaves alone
The prohibition directly connects the LiPo Battery cathode with the metal to short-circuit.
The prohibition rap or throws, steps on the LiPo Battery and soon
Forbids directly to weld the LiPo Battery and pierces the LiPo Battery with the nail or other sharp weapons
If the LiPo Battery sends out an unusual smell, gives off heat, the distortion or appears any exceptionally, immediately moves the LiPo Battery from the installment or the LiPo Battery charger to and stops using
If the LiPo Battery occurs leaks, the electrolyte enters the eye, please do not have to rub scratches, the application clear water flushing eye and delivers the medical treatment otherwise to be able immediately to injure the eye
When LiPo Battery long-term storage, or assembly in the host, suggest customer should take every 6months carry on one-time charge and discharge and recharge it to half charged state (3.7-3.9V)(the method: 0.2CmA charge and discharge)
Abandon the LiPo Battery to wrap up the electrode using the insulating paper, prevented the LiPo Battery from short-circuits
Do not decompose the LiPo Battery
Keep small LiPo cells and LiPo Batteries which are considered swallowable out of the reach of children
Swallowing may lead to burns, perforation of soft tissue, and death. Severe burns can occur within 2 h of ingestion
In case of ingestion of a LiPo cell or LiPo Battery, seek medical assistance promptly.
