NORWE Environment - REACH

Environment - REACH

The EU Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) entered into force on 1 June 2007. Its goal is to protect human health and the environment. Manufacturers, importers and downstream users may place on the market only those substances which ensure this.

The Regulation is based on the precautionary principle – the registration of substances is to a large extent compulsory. Since the first publication of the list of candidates of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) NORWE has on every update regularly checked all standard materials used and since 2008 can confirm that they do not contain any Substances of Very High Concern.
