On July 8th, 2014, ARCHE CVBA and REACHLaw Oy announced a strategic partnership that aims to strengthen both ARCHE and REACHLaw’s current offering to provide parties needing REACH Authorisation and related services with a combined best of the breed service. 


“REACHLaw can be considered as the benchmark in the field of authorisation services while ARCHE is been recognized as one of the prominent players in delivering high-end risk assessment services. As such combining forces is a logical thing to do and creates a unique knowledge platform to the benefit of our clients” says Managing Director of ARCHE, Mr. Marnix Vangheluwe.”


“ARCHE is well known and respected for its expertise in exposure modelling and chemicals risk assessment. REACHLaw on the other hand has been praised for its work in the economic and social impact assessment, and its downstream user focused approach. The collaboration is both logical and complementary. In a new and complex process such as Authorisation, we believe our combined expertise and effort will best meet the industry’s needs.” says Chief Operating Office of REACHLaw, Dr. Ying Zhu.      


The companies plan to strengthen their individual Authorisation services by combining the expertise they have developed in Socio-Economic Analysis, Analysis of Alternatives and Risk Assessment into a combined offering.


The companies plan to organize educational and awareness building events later this year as part of the partnership agreement.




ARCHE CVBA is a Belgium-based consultancy providing regulatory, sustainability and risk assessment services to a global customer base.
