REACH and restricted substance terminology

Clarifying the wording used in the European REACH chemical legislation.

by Martin Heels

The European REACH legislation (Regulation 1907/2006) uses specific terminology that may need clarification for those who are not experts in the field. SATRA can provide training to members to make their individual legal obligations under REACH easier to understand. As part of this training, we have created the following glossary to define some of the key terms that surround REACH as a guide to provide clarity when these terms are encountered.

Terms used in the legislation


Phthalate plasticisers are often used in PVC compounds. Some of these substances are restricted under the REACH legislation

Terms used in restricted substances and analytical chemistry

How can we help?

We hope you have found this glossary useful. Please email if you have any questions or require further information on REACH and restricted substances training, consultancy and testing.
