Information 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 produce and sell products which are defined as “products” and not as “substances” or “mixtures” in accordance with TITLE I, CHAPTER 2, Article 3 (Definitions) of the “REACH” regulation. As a “downstream user”, RK Rose+Krieger GmbH is not subject to registration obligations for “substances”.

Within the scope of our management system, we ensure that what is referred to as the “SVHC” list (Substance of Very High Concern) of “ECHA” (European Chemicals Agency) is regularly checked for possible updates and compared with the materials we use.

We check and observe the restrictions for use as per “Annex XVII” as a matter of course during the development process.

If we ascertain that our products contain “substances” on the “SVHC list” with a percentage by weight requiring compulsory information as per “Article 33”, we actively comply with this obligation.

According to our current information, we confirm that the “products” produced by RK Rose+Krieger GmbH either contain no “substances” on the “SVHC” list from 17/01/2023 with critical percentages by weight, or we inform our customers actively ourselves.

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.
