New European Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) entered into force.
One of the requirements of REACH is that manufacturers and importers have the duty to register chemical substances that they produce or import in quantities over 1 t/year. Another requirement is to inform customers if we have substances from the candidate list in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) in our products. A third requirement is not to use substances from annex XVII.
GRUNDFOS has a high global standard for human health and environmental awareness, and we declare to comply with the requirements in REACH for all our products.
Regarding Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Grundfos aim higher than REACH requires. We will strive to substitute all substances from the candidate list in force at any time - that are found in our products or packaging materials in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w).
GRUNDFOS policy is to be fully compliant with the REACH legislation and to work closely with suppliers and customers. This declaration is part of our policy of keeping our customers fully informed about our REACH commitment.
With kind regards
Group Environment Manager
