Exporters of chemicals and articles to the European Union need to comply with REACH regulation i.e. Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals.

REACH addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. Hence, chemical suppliers need to be sure that their chemicals meet the authorizations and restrictions as described in this law.

How can NimkarTek help ?

  1. Test your products for presence of SVHC’s (Substances of Very High Concern)
  2. Test your products for restrictions listed under Annexure XVII
  3. Substance Identification Studies

REACH – Substance Identification Studies

Registration of substances and mixtures for REACH is mandatory for exporters of chemicals > 1 ton per annum to the EU Member states. This involves studying and reporting the composition, impurity profile and spectral and chromatographic data supporting the structure of the substance and establishing sameness to determine the most appropriate SIEF (Substance Information Exchange Forum) under REACH.

NimkarTek Laboratory has the technical expertise to help you build a mini-dossier, which is required during your registration process. Our scientists are experts in analysis and in the interpretation of spectra obtained from the different analytical techniques. We can deliver high quality analytical testing and interpretation to meet your REACH needs.


We offer the following

  • Perform analytical testing of your substance (This includes LC-MS and HPLC, GC-MS, NMR, FTIR, UV-Vis, Solid Content, Moisture Content)
  • Interpret the Analytical Data
  • Prepare a mini- dossier (as per Annexure VI, Section 2 of REACH), which can be submitted to REACH Authorities or your ‘Only Representative’ (OR)
