The EU REACH Regulation entered into force on June 1 2007. REACH stands for Registration Evaluation and Authorization of CHemicals.
All substances, such as zinc metal, alloys and compounds (zinc oxides, sulphates etc.) manufactured in Europe and/or imported into Europe are now registered. Presently, zinc concentrates when not chemically modified seem to be exempted from the obligation to be registered but will be notified.
