Protecting people and the environment
We support REACH, the pan-European legislation for the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of CHemicals. The aim of REACH is to protect people’s health and the environment through a risk assessment of chemicals produced in the European Community.
REACH makes manufacturers, importers and their customers responsible for the safe use of chemicals. The producers and importers have to assess the risks of their substances over the entire value chain and have to demonstrate that those risks are properly managed. The authorities will control this process by means of the registration dossiers to be submitted by the producers or importers and take additional measures on highly dangerous substances, where needed.
We see REACH a business opportunity since the legislation fits well with our Product Stewardship and HSE&S policies and commitments as well as our support for the Responsible Care® initiative.
