The European Regulations (EC) 1907/2006 concerning the Regulation, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) came into force on 1 June 2007. (Pre-)registration is required in the EU for manufactures of products using Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), e.g. textiles, cars, electronic chips, on 30 November 2008, November 2010, June 2013, June 2018 and January 2019, July 2019 depending on the levels or volumes of specified substances.
We maintain regular contact with our suppliers to avoid any of the 201 SVHC materials on the REACH Candidate List of 16 July 2019, being included in our products. We confirm that the products and packaging we supply do not release SVHC chemicals (they are defined as “preparations in containers” and do not contain free substances above 0.1 mass-% per product).
Should our product contain SVHC materials in the future, we will inform our customers.
