We are proud that all our products are REACH (an EU regulation) compliant, this covers all the products we manufacture including those we sell outside of the EU.
REACH stands for the 4 processes it covers, namely the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals. A list of the substances is maintained that have hazards with serious consequences (substances of very high concern – SVHC’s). Every year this list is reviewed and updated, meaning that our products are also tested as updates are made to the list. Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 – Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)
Furthermore we also test our products for the use of phlatate’s (a group of chemicals used to make plastics more durable, often called plasticizers) which are used in the PVC manufacturing process, this is to ensure they are within the safe usage levels, this also falls under the scope of REACH.
