REACH is a European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemical substances. The new law entered into force on 1 June 2007.
The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, innovative capability and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry should be enhanced. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.
Substances of Very High Concern, (SVHC), are identified on the Candidate List by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). New SVHC are added to the Candidate List at least twice annually. The latest Candidate List can be found at the following URL: http://echa.europa.eu/candidate-list-table.
REACH certificates for products provided by AST Bearings are available upon request.
