Impact Analysis

A single organization can have multiple roles under REACH and its obligations can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. At SGS, we understand the complexity of the requirements of the REACH regulation. We can carry out a REACH impact analysis for your business and offer pragmatic solutions to help you understand your obligations and achieve compliance.

The nature of your obligations under REACH depend on factors such as your role in the supply chain, whether you manufacture and/or use chemical substances, their origin and the properties of products your organization purchases, manufactures or sells. Our aim is to help your organization define its roles through a REACH analysis, identify key priorities to focus on ahead of each compliance phase and to deliver these services cost-effectively.

Understand how REACH affects you

SGS will conduct an initial assessment to determine how your company and your substances or products are affected. This includes: 

  • Producing an inventory of chemical substances
  • Conducting analysis of the supply chain
  • Conducting data gap analysis
  • Assessing your obligations
  • Assessing your role within REACH
  • Reviewing and revising classification and labeling
  • Preparing a detailed action plan

Why SGS?

Our REACH expertise, combined with consultancy services and knowledge of the different markets, make us your ideal partner to achieve compliance. Find out more about how SGS can help you understand the implications of REACH for your organization.
