Guidance in a Nutshell
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is producing a series of shortened versions of the REACH Guidance Documents in order to make the corresponding Guidance Documents published by the Agency more accessible for industry.
These documents explain in simple terms the main elements of the full guidance to industry managers including managers of small and medium sized enterprises. It will enable companies to have a quick overview of the implications for them of different aspects of REACH. Such shortened documents providing guidance in a nutshell cannot contain all details and therefore, it is advised to consult the full guidance in case of any doubt.
Some of these documents have been or will be translated into official EU languages. You can access the translations from this webpage: use the language menu on the top right corner of the page.
