PARIS — More than 2.2 million companies — including beauty firms — that manufacture chemicals in or import chemicals to Europe and the European Economic Area countries, including Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, preregistered the substances by midnight Dec. 1 under REACH, the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization Chemicals regulations, a landmark chemicals law.
The firms were given six months to preregister the chemicals, which ended up covering more than 100,000 substances, according to the European Chemicals Agency, of Helsinki. Half of the companies’ submissions came during the last three weeks.
