As early, as in December, the Kharkiv Control Laboratory of Chemical Safety, which is operated by the STC "Institute for Single Crystals" of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, will have an international accreditation that will allow to perform chemical analysis of products in accordance with the REACH Regulation, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

Experts say the REACH standard (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals) is a European norm for registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. This is a new EU directive concerning manufacture, trade and use of chemicals, which is aimed to protect human health and the environment from the "chemical" risks.

The Kharkiv laboratory has been already RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) certified to perform safety control of industrial products, which allows it to adequately analyze any products and issue quality certificates. This was announced by Vladimir Seminozhenko, Chairman of the State Agency for Science, Innovation and Informatization.

Experts say on the basis of this and other laboratories, Ukraine is actively creating its own network of certification centers recognized in Europe, which will allow Ukrainian importers and exporters to obtain in Ukraine all documents they need to support their operations.

Previously, in order to get a "quality certificate" for their products, Ukrainian producers had to apply to the European, and even Chinese labs, and pay premium prices. These services will now become more affordable for Ukrainian companies.
