REACH regulations state that all chemical producers/importers in the European Union (EU) that handle more than one ton of chemicals per year must register information regarding the chemicals in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) database.*
Without registering it is impossible to either produce or import chemicals.
- *For companies that handle more than 10 tons of chemicals, additional chemical safety reports (CSR) (including hazard and risk assessments) are required.
In particular, when using or selling substances of very high concern (SVHC) it is required to obtain certification, but it is also mandatory to file a report whenever products contain more than 0.1% by weight of SVHC (163 substances as of June 15, 2015).
We are continuing to test for new SVHC and offer environmental information to our customers.
