REACh is the new European Community regulation no. 1907/2006 on Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals. It entered into force on June 1st, 2007.
The aim is to improve the protection of human health and of environment against the risks that can be posed by chemicals.
REACh effects all producers, importers, distributors, and users of chemical substances of more than 1 ton per year.
Isola got involved into this new regulation at an early stage:
- In co-operation with our suppliers of chemicals, all relevant substances were registered with the European Chemicals Agency in Helsinki. In this way we ensure a continuous problem-free supply of our basic chemicals.
- Being also a processor of chemicals, we consequently registered the information on these substances in the central database, too. Any products manufactured thereof comply with the REACh guidelines and can therefore be safely delivered to customers.
- Isola products, both laminates and prepregs, are not obligatory for registration.
We herewith confirm that purchase and processing of chemical substances at Isola comply with the regulations of REACh.
