    described as the most complex legislation in the Union s history and the most important in 20 years The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical products At the same time REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually as more and more substances are phased into REACH The REACH Regulation places greater responsibility on industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on their products Manufacturers and importers are required to gather information on the properties of their chemical substances which will allow their safe handling and to register the information in a central database run by the European Chemicals Agency ECHA in Helsinki Finland Following successful pre registration in November 2008 all BLA Members have now submitted their dossiers and successfully registered their lime substances with ECHA far in advance of the 1st December 2013 deadline ENDS Notes to Editors The BLA is a constituent body of the Mineral Products Association MPA which is the trade association for the aggregates asphalt cement
