ABSTRACT
REACH is undeniably one of the most important legal acts, which aims on protection of human health and environment. In order to ensure this, both manufactures and importers are obligated to collect or generate data on substances and asses how risk to human health and environment can be controlled. All chemical substances manufactured or imported within the European Community (EU) territory in quantities of more than 1 Mg per year have to be registered. REACH also applies to zeolites. The last mentioned are a large group natural and synthetic hydrated aluminum silicates. Synthetic zeolites were produced since 1950. Nowadays the annual production exceeds 12 000 Mg. This paper presents the aspects of REACH regulation in
case of zeolites production.

Keywords: zeolites, REACH system, environmental management
