can  you  please  provide  the link to the REACH regulation referring to
usage  of  the  bichromates  in  commercial  business? I am located in
Germany  and  have a one person business in digital photography. Now I
consider  to  transfer  at least one part of my alternative processes to
commercial  basis  too. But after your conversation I am wondering, if
it  is  a  clever  idea  at  all.  Are  there other relevant chemicals
(like from Wetplate, Cyanotype etc.) affected by REACH so hard too?

best wishes,
