I searched the forum for "REACH" and only located a few threads related to the topic and they were fairly dated going back to 2008.
We have a few customers that are now asking that we provide them with information / certification in regard to the REACH directive.  Just curious as to everyone's experience with this and how you are handling it?  Your input / feedback would be appreciated.

Personally, I have over 400 materials, but only about 25 manufacturers of materials. (Ticona, Sabic, Ineos, Dupont)

So I find it easiest to ask each supplier/distributor (Nexeo, MHolland, Entec, or PolyOne) to send me a blanket REACH letter from the manufacturer every 1-3 years; depending on how often I use their product, or how often the customer asks for it.

I keep scanned copies of all of these on my networks' hard drive and as I use IQMS I also attach these under the external documents tab for each material.

Then when my customer asks me for ROHS or REACH, I just send them copies of the latest letters I have on file, as well as the SDS.

Which a lot of new SDS's have a ROHS &/or REACH directive listed in them under section 15.
