High level of security for
human health and the environment

Braskem follows the guidelines of the European regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), which requires the identification of the composition, application and use of all substances exported to the continent.

Braskem's adaptation to REACH demonstrates the company's commitment and attention to the market and people. The purpose of the standard is to establish a high level of safety for human health and the environment, through the registration, evaluation and authorization of all chemical products marketed in the European Union.
The criteria defined for product registration are the quantity sold and the risks they pose to health and the environment.

This regulatory system, in force since 2007, was approved by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union. The implementation and management of Reach is the responsibility of ECHA (European Chemicals Agency), whose premise is to ensure that substance registrations are kept up-to-date regarding changes in composition, identification of new uses and applications or any change with regard to production and commercialization of registered products.
