The overarching objective of this database is to provide information to suppliers and sub-suppliers on materials and substances that are prohibited by European and international legislation

The Railway Industry Substance List provides a comprehensive and accurate list of the prohibited and declarable chemicals used specifically by the railway industry. The list defines and categorises substances and furthermore provides the locale of where restrictions must be considered.

First initiated as a result of the European REACH regulation (EC 1907/2006) that entered into force on 1st June 2007, the list will help users to comply with the regulation's legal provisions for manufacturers, downstream users and importers of substances. The UNIFE Topical Group has furthermore extended the legal scope outside Europe to include Canada, China, and the USA.
