Further information on the subject of material compliance | product compliance

Material Compliance (MC) deals with the observance of environmental and international laws and regulations, religiously motivated requirements and requirements of companies that restrict or even prohibit the use of various substances and / or materials in products.

Translation from https://de wikipedia org/wiki/Material_Compliance

– There are currently 50+ material compliance requirements worldwide


Almost every company in the EU has to deal with the complexity and constant expansion of the MC requirements and, above all, meet them. Primarily, it is a matter of passing on information about the various substances / materials that are used. Everyone is obliged and responsible to comply with the rules and regulations and also to guarantee compliance with the applicable legal restrictions.


One goal of the material compliance regulations and guidelines is to increase the transparency of the materials used, to ensure the provision of material data and, if necessary, the labeling of the corresponding substances.


As an external material compliance officer (TÜV), I support you with the answers for your individual questions, e.g. when processing customer inquiries. I offer you complete solutions for dealing with material compliance issues in your company. Through the targeted analysis of your company, I create a tailor-made concept for you and accompany you in its implementation. So that this does not only take effect temporarily, internal guidelines are created for all business areas concerned so that the MC requirements are also met for new products or product changes. An economically viable implementation is guaranteed through open communication and high transparency of the respective steps.


Background to the REACH regulation

The most extensive set of material compliance regulations is the REACH regulation (EC) 1907/2006. It is the European chemicals regulation for the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals). The administration for these and other regulations is carried out by the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency).

In the 1960s, with Directive 67/548 / EEC, which dealt with the classification, packaging and labeling of substances dangerous to humans or the environment, the EU made initial efforts to establish uniform regulations for the handling of chemicals.


Primarily, the need to develop regulations and guidelines has been driven by disasters. For example the chemical accident in Seveso in 1976 or the "Bhopal disaster" in 1984. The latter released several tons of toxic substances into the atmosphere. It resulted in an estimated 10,000 deaths and 300,000 injuries. When such accidents occur, it is often not even known what substances are involved and how those affected can be helped.


But as well environmental pollution that caused “acid rain” and polluted water is one of the drivers, as well as manifold problems caused by the improper handling and disposal of chemicals. More and more environmental organizations were formed and the population was made more and more aware.


The biggest problem still arises from the multitude of chemicals existing around the world (1981:> 100,000 substances), for which there is for the most part no risk management and whose hazard potential is largely unknown. Lt. The ECHA does not yet have sufficient data sets for more than 86% of the high-volume production chemicals (2021).

In my opinion, REACH is taking a very hopeful approach.


  • Instead of, as was the case in the past, it is no longer the duty of the person concerned or the state to prove the dangerousness of chemicals, but the responsibility for safe production and use is placed in the hands of the industry.
  • “Old” as well as new chemicals must be registered and fundamentally described in the dossiers required for this.
  • The resulting dossiers are evaluated by ECHA and the responsible authorities of the respective member states.
  • Appropriate investigation of the dangers while minimizing animal testing and costs is sought. Registrants for the same chemicals are requested to share the effort involved in preparing the dossier.
  • The harmonization of the prescribed tests leads to results that can be compared with one another.
  • Die Autorisierung führt dazu, das besonders besorgniserregende Stoffe (SVHC’s) Beschränkungen unterworfen oder gar vollständig verboten werden. Es wird dazu gedrängt diese Stoffe zu substituieren.
