(C) ECHA: A Primer of EU Chemicals Legislation for SMEs

September 2015. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) ECHA has published new support pages and an introductory guide helping companies which are not yet familiar with the European chemicals legislation to understand their obligations. The web pages provide easy step-by-step information in 23 EU languages for manufacturers, importers, distributors and users of chemicals as well as only representatives. There is also information for companies using biocides or trading hazardous chemicals.

The guide is especially useful for small and medium-sized enterprises. It gives an overview of the EU chemicals legislation and how to get started in understanding it and complying with it. The publication provides links to potential EU and national funding for companies and lists useful sources of information.
