REACH European chemicals policy
All of the required REACH registrations for Shell Chemicals products were completed ahead of the November 30, 2010 deadline. Registration numbers are included in the registration inventory that can be accessed on this page as well as on revised Safety Data Sheets, which have been released for all of our products.
The registration of a product under REACH is a complex process, requiring significant effort on the part of manufacturers and importers, and likely to stretch over at least three years.
REACH impacts the whole chemical supply chain. Whether you are a manufacturer, importer or downstream user, make sure you know your responsibilities to ensure continuity of supply.
Registration of Shell Chemicals products under REACH includes the registration of specific product uses. Downstream users will need to review and feedback on product-specific use information when released in updated Safety Data Sheets.
The Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals starts to take effect in Europe in 2010. Read more about the basic principles and timelines.
