For health and the environment
AkzoNobel Chelates supports the main objective of REACH, an improved protection of human health and the environment from the risk of chemicals. This is consistent with our commitment to Product Stewardship — the responsible and ethical management of the health, safety and environmental aspects of a product throughout its total life cycle. AkzoNobel Chelates has been working towards the aim of REACH for several years, via the Responsible Care program, the High Production Volume chemicals testing program in the US and the extensive risk assessments on EDTA and NTA under the European Existing Substances Regulation.
A key priority in the implementation of REACH is close cooperation and coordination with our customers and suppliers, to ensure that the required information is exchanged between all players in the supply chain.
We are well positioned and committed to support our customers in making this challenging task a success. We will also continue to provide input to the EU institutions, to contribute to the development of a workable REACH legislation.
