REACH Directive EU legislation on chemicals
REACH, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances, is the name of a regulation (EC no. 1907/2006) from the European Commission that aims to ensure that the 100,000 different types of chemicals used in the EU are documented with regard to safety for humans and the environment. The proposal is significant for all chemicals produced, imported or used in quantities of at least 1 ton annually by a company in an EU member country. For many of the chemicals that are most hazardous to human health and the environment, companies are obliged to use a less hazardous chemical if possible. Our products do not use chemicals that appear on the REACH directive's list of harmful substances with a concentration over 0.1 per cent by weight. Our products contain no chemicals or hazardous substances, and only standard oils and lubricants are used in the production of our springs.
No chemicals from the SVHC list are used in our products.
SVHC is a list containing a number of substances that are especially dangerous, classified separately under REACH (Substances of Very High Concern = SVHC). The list (updated 19 January 2021) can be viewed here.
