Information letter on “REACH”

Information on the regulation “(EC) No. 1907/2006 for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals”
(Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals - REACH)
The REACH regulation requires that all chemical substances produced in quantities of more than one tonne per year are pre-registered or registered before they can be approved for distribution in the European Union.

RK ROSE+KRIEGER GmbH does not produce any substances affected by this regulation.
We only sell products which are defined in a chemical-legal sense as “products” and not “substances” or “preparations”, in accordance with TITLE I, CHAPTER 2, Article 3 “Definitions”. According to the requirements of the REACH regulation, RK Rose+Krieger GmbH is a downstream user and not subject to REACH registration requirements.

Furthermore, we can also confirm that no products produced by RK Rose+Krieger GmbH contain substances in concentrations that exceed the permitted limit values laid down by “ECHA” (European Chemicals Agency) in its so-called “Candidate list” of “Substances of Very High Concern” (SVHC).
Nevertheless, in the interests of both ourselves and our customers, RK Rose+Krieger GmbH keeps a register of hazardous substances, in which the annual quantities of chemicals used are recorded and continuously updated.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any further queries.
