Antalis  and European REACH Regulation

Antalis is mindful of its environmental responsability.

Dear Partner and dear customer,

As you may know, the European Regulation 1907/2006 regarding the Recording, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Hazardous substances (REACH) came into effect on June 1st 2007. Compliance involves several stages, and the regulatory requirements vary according to the nature of the products and the quantity introduced onto the European market.

Antalis, as a distributor, does not have any pre-registration or registration obligation under REACH.

Antalis does, of course, work closely with its suppliers to ensure that they, along with their own suppliers, complete the necessary formalities regarding the chemical substances they use, and will continue to do so in the future.

REACH regulation also includes an information duty for certain products containing a “Substance of Very High Concern” (SVHC)* with a concentration higher than 0.1%m/m

On the basis of our current knowledge and the specific information provided by our suppliers, only a very small group of products in the Antalis range contain such substances. The list of these products and all the necessary details are available on demand and are updated upon receipt of new information from suppliers.

Our sales teams are available to answer any questions you might have on this topic.

*Substances of very high concern (SVHC) regarding to REACH (Annex XIV): Carcinogens, mutagens or toxic to reproduction (CRM category 1 or 2), persistent, bio accumulative and toxic (PBT) or very persistent and very bio accumulative (vPvB) or for which there is evidence for similar concern.
