Which substances have to be registered?
Registration is required for all substances:
- as defined in Article 3(1) of REACH;
- manufactured in or imported into the EU in quantities of 1 tonne or more per registrant per year;
- unless they are exempted from registration or regarded as being already registered, according to provisions in Articles 2, 9, 15 or 24 of the REACH Regulation;
- irrespective of whether they are classified as dangerous or not.
If you want to know whether you have to register a substance you should first consult section 2.2- 'What to register?' of the Guidance on registration. There you will also find information on substances exempted from registration: http://echa.europa.eu/guidance-documents/guidance-on-reach.
