REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals)    

The law on chemicals, REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) entered into force on 1st June 2007 and affects all companies producing, importing, using, or placing products on the European market.

The aim of REACH is to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment from chemical substances. The REACH regulation will give greater responsibility to industry to manage the risk from chemicals and to provide safety information on all substances. The benefits of the REACH system will gradually increase, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.

TR Fastenings is primarily classed as a distributor of “articles with no intended release”. We have communicated with our supply chain and advised them of their responsibilities under REACH. Should we find that any product we supply contains an SVHC (Substance of Very High Concern), we will advise our customers within the legal timeframe.
