Understanding The UK And EU REACH Regulations

TSG Consulting Monday, 1 February 2021

You may have come across the REACH regulations if you live and work in Europe, but what are they, and why are they necessary? In this in-depth lesson, Dr Steven Brennan and Dr Garry Dix from TSG Consulting give an introduction and broad overview of what REACH is and what it stands for, how and where it is relevant, and why you as a responsible fashion or textile business - or for that matter, a designer of any product - should heed this information.

TSG Consulting assists companies in understanding and navigating the regulatory landscape, which spans further than REACH, but in this lesson we get down deep to recognise where and when it is relevant for you.


In this video you'll learn:

  • What EU REACH is and its purpose in terms of industry regulation of chemicals
  • When to use REACH
  • How to find out about your obligations as a business
  • What restricted substances, mixtures, and articles might be relevant for a fashion or textile business
