Declaration on the REACH Regulation

European Community Regulation on Chemicals
REACH - Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals


On June 1st, 2007, regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH) has entered into force. Until the first phase-in deadline of December 1st 2010 all substances with a yearly volume of ≥ 1000 tons had to be registered at the European chemicals Agency ECHA in Helsinki. Until the second phase-in deadline of June 1st 2013 all substances with a yearly volume of ≥ 100 tons had to be registered. Until the third phase-in deadline of 1st June 2018 all substances and mixtures with a yearly volume of ≥ 1 ton have to be registered.

Symalit is a downstream user and only manufactures products which - if used properly - do not emit any relevant substances. Registration is therefore not required.

Nevertheless, Symalit implements the REACH regulation, also in keeping the interests of the
customers in mind. Thus, we ask of our suppliers to register products, including their uses, which
fall under the REACH regulation or to pass this requirement on to ther sub-suppliers. This supplier
requirement is included in the relevant Symalit documentation.
