Overview

UK REACH came into force on the 1st January 2021 and the first substances to be considered for risk management under UK REACH are tattoo inks, lead in ammunition and certain per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

Summary

Work has already begun to gather the evidence and assess the risks in order to determine the appropriate risk management actions within the new UK REACH framework. In this Part 2 of our mini-series on the regulation of chemicals, regulators and policy makers will provide an introduction to how substances are prioritised for action and some examples of current risk management activity.
