The European Union
(EU), through Regulation EC/1907/2006 of 18 Dec 2006, has required the
registration of chemicals imported into the EU. This regulation, also known as
“Regulation, Evaluation, and Authorization of CHemicals” (“REACH”), required
registration of applicable substances between June 1, 2008 and December 1, 2008.
Failure to register can result in the prevention of the product from being
imported into the EU. APM Hexseal has carefully studied this legislation and
believes that, based on the following points, that we are in compliance with and
not required to register in the REACH program.
Based on this, APM Hexseal does not believe that we are
subject to the REACH registration process.
If you have questions or require
further clarifications, please contact our Quality Assurance Manager, Mary Jane Cella.
