Croatian accession to the European Union


©European Union

Croatia will join the European Union on 1 July 2013 and therefore the REACH, CLP, Biocides and PIC Regulations, as well as all other EU Chemicals legislation, will apply to companies established in Croatia from that date. The application of some provisions of the REACH regulation is subject to transitional measures as laid down in the Accession Treaty (Treaty concerning the accession of the Republic of Croatia).

In order to comply with the obligations to register and notify chemical substances to the European Chemicals Agency, Croatian companies will have access to the related IT tools: IUCLID 5 and REACH-IT.

Key material in Croatian

The Agency offers a series of publications to help companies to comply with the REACH, CLP and Biocidal Product Regulation. You can find related guidance and IT manuals in 23 EU languages by consulting the Support section of the ECHA website. Our work plans, annual reports, fact sheets and various regulatory reports can be accessed through the Publication link in the Support section.
