IMCD N.V. confirms its compliance with the objectives of the Regulation EC 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). The main objectives of REACH are to determine the hazards of chemicals and to carry out risk assessments in order to protect human health and the environment. Applicable across the whole industry chain, REACH took effect on 1 June 2007 and will be completely operational in 2018. Where relevant and required, all substances imported into the European Union by IMCD Group have been appropriately registered and/or pre-registered. For further information on REACH, please contact your IMCD sales representative.
As chemicals are integral to modern day-to-day life, IMCD recognizes the importance of distributing sustainable products safely. As a responsible distributor and importer of chemicals, IMCD cares for the safety and health of people and the environment. IMCD will cooperate with (co-)producers, suppliers, and customers to fully and successfully implement REACH objectives.
IMCD welcomes the fact that REACH will encourage the industry to innovate and either to replace substances of very high concern by suitable alternative ones, or use them in a way in which risks are adequately controlled.
The objectives of REACH • To create higher awareness for the safe use of chemicals; • To improve the protection of human health and the environment; • To enhance the innovative capacity of EU industry, while maintaining its competitiveness.
