REACH AFFECTS YOUREACH regulations have significant implications for the European automotive industry. It is vital that the whole supply chain is aware of the tasks needed to achieve compliance. These complex regulations present a threat to industry in a number of ways including;
- Sudden non-availability of components or material
- Unlimited fines
The effective communication between all levels of the supply chain is vital. Definite contacts need to in place between organisations enabling the transfer of chemical safety data from the importer or manufacturer down the supply chain.
2. No Data Market!
Companies that do not comply with REACH will have no market in the EEA. REACH poses a threat to any company doing business in the EEA (and businesses with customers or suppliers who do business in the EEA).
3. Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
Individual chemicals that have particular hazardous properties are termed “Substances of Very High Concern” (SVHC's). These will have strict controls applied to their use. Ultimately SVHC's will be removed from all supply chains, so close attention needs to be paid to their presence and monitoring of their use in advance of their disappearance. There may be several hundred SVHC's announced by the EU Member States or the European Commission in the coming few years, so their impact will be far reaching.
4. Automotive Task Force on REACH
Leading automotive suppliers and vehicle manufacturers have come together to respond to the challenges set by REACH. The Task Force represents the position of the global automotive industry.
5. Automotive Industry Guideline (AIG)
The Task Force has created this standardised approach to REACH. It is a practical guide that clearly outlines the necessary tasks. The AIG is highly recommended; it is easy to follow and brings clear benefits when implemented across industry. Automotive Industry Guideline (AIG) version 3.1 was released in June 2012.
