Preserving the Environment and the People

REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 has imposed new obligations on companies like us that export products to EU and EEA-EFTA countries or that provide services for export. We give utmost importance to this regulation due to its contribution to the preservation of human health and the environment and its objective of decreasing animal testing. 

Our suppliers are responsible from registering the substances that we export, and these procedures are followed-up by us. We encourage responsible handling of the chemicals, safe production of our products, their safe dispatch in the supply chain, and their safe usage by our customers. 

The improvements in the regulation are always being followed-up from the official website of European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). In this context, we are also continuously following-up the “The Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)” published by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), the “List of Substances Subject to Authorization (Annex XIV)” published within the scope of the regulation, the “List of Restrictions (Annex XVII)”, and the additions and updates made to these.
