Reach

REACH stands for «Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Registration of Chemicals». This EU directive was implemented to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risk of chemicals.

WINTER & COMPANY is aware of the importance of the REACH directive. All production sites are therefore urged not to use declarable substances in a concentration that are not REACH compliant in the production of our materials.

Relavant conformity declarations are at hand and also refer to declarations from up stream suppliers. Hence we are convinced that none of our materials require REACH registration. This declaration refers to our current state of knowledge. Should we learn of irregularities we will communicate these immediately.
