Have you ever done an inventory of the chemicals and articles you buy?

The REACH&CLP Helpdesk Luxembourg offers you an update of its "REACH EXCEL Tool" (Version 3.2). This tool was inspired by the REACH tool developed in 2008 by the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB) and the “FPS Economy, SMEs, self-employed and Energy Belgium”.

This tool permits you to collect all relevant information and create an inventory of all substances used in your enterprise. It is aimed at SMEs and will help you to identify critical substances, estimate the required effort and the influence REACH will have on your activities.

It consists of two parts:

  • REACH Excel Tool: A simple and functional tool in Excel format, to collect and analyse your data.
  • REACH Excel Tool - User Guide: An interactive Guide with questions and hyperlinks to relevant documents to help you with your data entry.
  • Identification of the status of your enterprise under REACH and the associated obligations for every chemical or every article purchased;
  • Enables the monitoring of your suppliers to estimate any possible disruptions of supplies and it assists with the follow-up of Safety Data Sheets (SDS);

  • Usage as means of communication with the competent authorities and customers;
