REACH – Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of CHemical substances
REACH is the EU Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It covers registering and authorising the the use of all chemical substances, including the manufacture or importation of all substances into the EU.
Registration is required for companies that either produce or import into the EU any substance in volumes that exceed one tonne per substance. Harwin do not exceed this import amount, and will therefore not be required to register.
For authorisation and restriction, the SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern), Annex 14 and Annex 17 all influence substances that should be declared or avoided. These lists are typically updated with additional substances every six months. For the latest statement on Harwin’s latest position, please download the REACH statement from any product page or from the Legislation page – the REACH statement will be the first document listed on this page.
