The REACH regulation is going to spread over the globe! After countries like China, Korea and Turkey has implemented a chemical legislation, based on the contents of the European REACH regulation, India is going to follow.
The ministry of chemicals and fertilizers, the department of chemicals and petrochemicals has recently called for a new, REACH-like legislation: http://chemicals.nic.in/DNCP_2012.pdf
The vision for Indian chemical industry is:
• To facilitate the growth and development of the chemical industry in an environmental friendly manner; with focus on innovation to meet local needs, sustainability, and “green technologies & processes”; so as to enable it to become a globally competitive major-player
It remains to be seen whether the Indian legislation will go straight with the contents of EU REACH like Registration Evaluation and Authorisation or if they will just pick out some of the main objectives.
