The Tobacco Industry Platform (TIP) is a trade association and lobbying body. It says it aims to ensure that its members comply with the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (REACH) and related EU legislation.[1]

REACH came into force on 1 June 2007 and aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through "better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances". It places a responsibility on industries – including the tobacco industry – to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on the substances. Manufacturers and importers are required to gather information on the properties of their chemical substances, which will allow their safe handling.[2]
