Focus List

Chemical Management

Grundfos Focus List

At Grundfos, we run our business in a responsible and ever more sustainable way. We are committed to creating products and solutions that help our customers and the surrounding world conserve natural resources and reduce climate impacts. This is part of The Grundfos Values, as well as in accordance with the Grundfos Sustainability Strategy, which has the scope of reducing our chemical footprint and developing new ever more sustainable products and solutions.

In order to give our suppliers, contractors and other relevant stakeholder world wide a tool to help comply with this, we have devised the Grundfos Focus List, which bans or restricts the use of certain chemical substances in Grundfos products, Grundfos production processes and at Grundfos facilities.

This in turn means that our suppliers are obliged only to deliver products, which follow the Grundfos Focus List. Please be aware that the list shows both bans for certain substances and restriction in use for other substances as well as the maximum accepted concentration limit - please consult the listed directives/regulation for details. 


Compliance with EU chemical regulations

The Grundfos Focus list has been developed on basis of European chemical legislation such as the

  • REACH regulation
  • RoHS directive
  • Packaging directive
  • Battery directive
  • ODS directive
  • POPs directive

In situations, where local legislation is stricter than European chemical legislation, these demands will overrule the claims of the Focus List.

Phase out of SVHCs

Furthermore, we want to phase out the use of the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) from the REACH Candidate List (www.echa.europa.eu/web/guest/candidate-list-table).

Should a product contain SVHC above 0.1 percent, a phase out must start immediately – please contact your Grundfos Purchase contact person.

RoHS substances
We ask our suppliers to deliver materials to Grundfos that are free of the listed substance groups in the RoHS directive according to the listed limit values.

The valid Focus list is at all times available at www.grundfos.com/focus-list. However, users of the list are responsible for taking legal updates of the listed regulations into account.

All information from suppliers must be directed to the Grundfos Purchase department buying your products or substances.
