Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals (REACH)
REACH is the new European Union Regulation that came into force on 1 June 2008. It addresses the impact of chemical substances on human health and the environment.
REACH requires importers (or manufacturers) of substances into the EU market to pre-register and then register with the European Chemical Agency in Helsinki and ensure that all possible steps are taken to protect users from any hazards that might come from these substances.
Importers (manufacturers) that haven`t pre-registered their substances will not be able to import them into EU in quantities of above 1 tonne per year from 1 January 2009.
Lipmann Walton has pre-registered all relevant substances that we are trading or intend to trade. As our customer you can be assured that we will fully comply with this EU regulation. If you have any questions regarding REACH please do not hesitate to contact us.
