Modern industrial manufacturing processes and modern societies need to use chemical substances. Chemistry and chemical products are described as the key elements in development of modern societies. In addition, chemical substances are used extensively in almost every stage of industrial production including in the iron and steel industry. Thus, production of chemicals and their usage are getting increased through the worldwide.

Due to transboundary nature of flyaway distribution of chemical substances, in terms of human health and environmental should be required of national and international cooperation. Therefore, there are a lot of applications in field of international collaboration. One of these applications is the REACH System developed by the European Union.

The REACH System is aimed to higher level protection of human health and environmental. Thanks to this system, will have more knowledge about chemical substances and this knowledge will be shared with the society. In this study, developing on chemicals control by the European Union will be discussed through implementation areas of the REACH System. An Erasmus+ project related to field is also briefly presented.
