Statement of Awareness
The European Regulation n. 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals (REACH) entered into force on 1 June 2007.
The REACH Regulation aims at "ensuring high level of protection for human health and environment, including the promotion of alternative methods for assessment of hazards of substances, as well as the free circulation of substances on the internal market while enhancing competitiveness and innovation" (Article 1.1 REACH)
The REACH Regulation sets new rules for the trade and management of chemical substances and pushes for improved communication between customers and suppliers for a safer use of the substances they buy and sell. Under certain provisions, the European manufacturers and importers are requested to register the substances they manufacture or import. Failure to register implies that the substance may no longer be manufactured nor placed on the EU market, according to the principle "no data - no market".
Marposs companies may not fall under the specific conditions prescribed for the compulsory registration of substances. Nevertheless, Marposs companies are fully aware of the potential disruptions that incomplete o late registrations could inflict on the supply chain. All the actions necessary to ensure the continued availability of the substances, chemical compounds and articles used in the manufacturing process have therefore been planned and are in execution.
