Toxic chemical law will undergo a major change in 2006 when the European Union is expected to enact legislation known as the Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH). REACH will replace more than 40 existing directives and regulations. It requires registration of chemicals made in or imported to the EU, assessment of the risks arising from chemical use, and implementation of measures to manage risks.
