-REACH was already enforced in 2015 and a large quantity of amendments were passed by the end of March 2018.

The most important issues in K-REACH changes are the expansion of obligated substances which should be registered to all existing chemicals which were manufactured or imported in the Korean market over 1 tonnage per year until 2030 with several grace periods (substance >1000 t/yr, should be registered in 2021, for 100~1000 t/yr in 2024, for 10~100 t/yr in 2027 and for 1~10 t/yr in 2030).

TThe differences between K-REACH and EU REACH will be defined and the obligation and compliance issues will also be introduced.
