REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is a European Union regulation, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternatives to animal testing. To comply, companies must identify and manage risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market in the EU, demonstrate to ECHA how the substance can be safely used, and communicate risk management measures to users. Carus Europe is the lead registrant for all Carus brands of liquid and solid permanganate and the only representative for all Carulite brands in Europe.
