The purpose of this paper is to highlight the possibilities that are raised by the European new chemical legislation known as REACH. The fundamental ideology of the REACH system is to collect the best available physico-chemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological information regarding hazardous chemicals, and then also control their usage in order to minimise the risks on humans and environment.
REACH is a driver for innovation and it will create direct and indirect research needs in the future.
