The REACH guidance web pages are now available in more European languages

The REACH guidance web pages are now available also in Czech, Dutch, Finnish,
French, German and Spanish. The list below contains all the Guidance Documents
which are available, or will be available, on the EU-website. These documents
have been developed with the participation of many stakeholders (Industry,
Member States and NGOs) within projects managed by the Commission. The
objective of these documents is to facilitate the implementation of REACH by
describing good practice on how to fulfil the obligations.

In detail there is guidance on the different processes under REACH:

pre-registered as well as when and how to pre-register them.
