Based on the EU chemicals policy, an increasing number of countries, such as Korea, Malaysia, China, the US, and Japan, have adopted stricter legislation in this area than ever before. China in particular has adopted a similar but tougher regulation than REACH. Japan has also made its existing chemicals legislation more stringent and has adopted the UN’s Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). Other countries such as Canada, the US, and Brazil are studying REACH while considering tightening their own legislation.
Certain chemicals will not only be banned and restricted in Europe but in other parts of the world and eventually worldwide. At the moment, restriction across regions is not uniform, so while some substances are prohibited or restricted in Europe, others are affected in China. This makes it very difficult for adhesive tape manufacturers and raw materials suppliers – in particular for those within these businesses who are responsible for monitoring regulatory affairs. These professionals need to keep abreast of public affairs worldwide on a daily basis and to determine how it will affect their organisations.
