Global Graphene Group (G3) has finalized certification for its first product with the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
G3’s Gi-SL-B series (N002-PS), a single layer of graphene oxide dispersed in water, has achieved the REACH certification. G3 is registered with REACH to ship one to 10 metric tons of its N002-PS product into the EU annually with C.S.B. GmbH., the only representative for G3 in the EU. The REACH certification for this product secures G3 the right to market the product in Europe.
REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals. REACH establishes procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances.
G3 is also a proud member of the REACH graphene consortium, taking an active role in how graphene solutions are handled in Europe.
“This REACH certification is vital as we ramp up production of our single-layer graphene oxide worldwide,” said Adam Quirk, Vice President of Business Development at G3. “Our team has worked towards this REACH certification for the past six months, and we’re working to have additional products certified in the coming months.”
As the leader in the graphene industry, Global Graphene Group adheres to strict environmental, health and safety procedures. G3 has a dedicated internal team focused on environmental, health and safety impacts of our manufacturing for our employees, our customers and our local communities.

REACH aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. This is done by the four processes of REACH, namely the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. REACH also aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. More about REACH: https://echa.europa.eu/regulations/reach/understanding-reach
