Committed to product safety

Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances, or 'REACH', ensures risks associated with chemical substances are managed consistently throughout the European Union (EU). Since Dow has always made product safety a top priority, compliance with REACH is directly in line with our 2015 Sustainability Goals.

A commitment to product safety is also why Dow takes a leading role in environmental, health, safety and security measures such as the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® initiative.

Fulfilling our duties together

REACH requires companies to identify, collect, evaluate, document and submit data to EU authorities on intrinsic properties and uses of the chemical substances they manufacture or import.

Our businesses continue to coordinate efforts to collect and evaluate toxicology data and information on downstream uses of the chemical substances we manufacture or import. With this data, we are establishing and completing REACH registration dossiers.

Always within REACH

Dow is here to help you with REACH.

Access to REACH-relevant information on our chemical substances is free and open to all - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - through our REACH Information on Dow Products search tool at our Self-service Center.

Specific information for EU customers, non-EU customers and indirect imports as well as information for suppliers can also be found within this website, Dow and REACH.
