REACH regulation aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.
The CLP Regulation ensures that the hazards presented by chemicals are clearly communicated to workers and consumers in the European Union through classification and labelling of chemicals.
BPR regulation aims to improve the functioning of the biocidal products market in the EU, while ensuring a high level of protection for humans and the environment.

Occupational exposure limit (OEL) values are derived within two legal frameworks that form an integral part of the EU’s mechanism for protecting the health of workers.
The Waste Framework Directive sets out legislation addressing the impact of inappropriate waste management on greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution and littering.
ECHA organises public consultations to get feedback from all interested parties and to gather the widest possible range of scientific information for the regulatory processes.
This is unique source of information on the chemicals manufactured and imported in Europe. It covers their hazardous properties, classification and labelling, and information on how to use them safely.
The Support section provides tools and practical guidance to companies which have responsibilities under the EU chemicals legislation.

The InfoCard summarises the non-confidential data on substances as held in the databases of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), including data provided by third parties. The InfoCard is automatically generated. Information requirements under different legislative frameworks may therefore not be up–to–date or complete.
