EUROPEAN COMMUNITY – 1 June 2008
The new European Regulation on chemicals, known as REACh, is now procedurally operative. All European manufacturers and importers of chemicals must register not exempted substances to ECHA. Existing substances can be pre-registered within 1 December 2008, in order to take advantage of transitional provisions for “phase-in” substances.
Akema will pre-register in due time all substances manufactured in quantity over 1 ton/year with the intention to register within 2013/2018 deadlines. As a downstream user, Akema will ensure that substances used for manufacturing will be duly pre-registered and/or registered.
We’re working to ensure a smooth transition from the current system to full compliance with REACh Regulation. If you have more question concerning how REACh will affect our products, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
