REACH Impacts and Pre-Registration

The EU REACH regulation is the most ambitious chemical policy change in history—creating new responsibility up and down the semiconductor manufacturing supply chain—from substrates to equipment to devices. In addition, REACH is expected to have global impact on the environment and influence the way that other jurisdictions regulate chemicals in the future.
