REACh

In December 2006, the EU Parliament and the EU Council of Ministers adopted and published the Regulation on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (the so-called REACh Regulation). Wocklum Chemie is aware of its responsibility and its responsibilities as a dealer, manufacturer, importer and user and takes European Regulation 1907/2006 (REACh) very seriously. This is why it is important that customers understand and recognise the contents of the complex REACh regulation. To make things easier, the REACh helpdesk is available.

REACh-CLP-Biozid Helpdesk BAUA

REACh-Helpdesk

Startseite – ECHA

Products that contain substances subject to registration have already been previously registered or fully registered by either Wocklum Chemie or upstream suppliers. As such, the graduated transitional periods can be used (until 2018). As soon as the registration and the registration numbers are known, they are entered into the safety data sheets (SDS) and sent to the customer via automatic SDS dispatch.

SVHC/candidates

The list of candidates (as of 12.01.2017) in accordance with Article 59 (1,10) of the above-mentioned Regulation has been published (cf. Internet address of the European Chemicals Agency (EChA) http://echa.europa.eu/chem_data/authorisation_process/candidate_list_table_en.asp).

The following applies to chemicals delivered to customers: If a substance in the candidate list is greater than 0.1% by mass, this substance is listed in the safety data sheet (Chapter 3 Composition).

As a REACh representative, Mrs. Heike Berns (for contact details, see below) is available to answer questions on this topic.
