REACH - the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals - is an important area of work for EUROFER, as chemical use in steel production is an important factor in the creation of high-quality steel products.

EUROFER has created a range of position papers for various aspects of the REACH file. These are available here.
