...to Regulation
In 2006 the European Union adopted the new chemical regulation REACH. Similar regulations for Cosmetics and Food Contact Materials followed. In Korea K-REACh was introduced 2013 and enters into force 01.01.2015. We aim to analyse, understand and provide effective solution to the international regulatory systems. By adding research to our approach, we can combine and facilitate.
