We want to take this opportunity for an update on progress on legislation REACH. Since our object is to ensure the continuity of supply to its customers, we have worked closely together with our suppliers to ensure that all the raw materials were pre-registered by December 31, 2008.
If, in the course of time, changes occur within the formulations, we will provide immediate notification to our clients.
REACH is a EU legislation, which came into force on June 1, 2007, on chemicals and their safe use. Concerns the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals).
Obligations of the manufacturer and importer.
If the quantity of the substance manufactured or imported are equal or greater than one Ton / year it is required pre-registration between June 1 and 1 December 2008, getting the benefit to subdivide registrations, this depends on what substances and the tonnage (2010, 2013 or 2018).
Mastikol is a “final user” and not a manufacturer or importer (extra CEE ) of chemicals substances, therefore has no obligation to make any pre-registration of these.
Our intention at the moment is to ensure that our suppliers carry out the register.
If one of our suppliers decide not to register for a particular substance or needs to replace it, they will send urgently the information to us, and we will forward promptly to the final consumer.
