Registration - Evaluation - Authorisation of Chemicals
In the EU, the chemicals directive REACh has been binding for all EU member states as of 1st June 2007. The REACh system is based on the principle of own responsibility of the industry. Within the region of validity, and based on the ”no data, no market” principle, only those chemical materials may be brought to the market that have previously been registered. The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) issues a so-called “candidate list” naming the “hazardous substances”. In accordance with the REACh directive, each supplier must identify the listed substances in their paperwork as soon as they take up a weight of more than 0.1 % of the overall product.
We can assure you that our products do not contain any substances from this candidate list (status at 18.06.2015) in accordance with article 59 (1) of the REACh directive on the determined threshold value. Our entire range of products meets the REACh criteria.
