As a national and international trading company we are aware of our responsibility and only trade in REACH-compliant products: All ingredients have been pre-registered respectively fully registered either by us or by our primary suppliers in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

Together with our clients we agree that products will only be used in accordance with relevant applications in the regulation dossier. This includes well-timed communications within the supply chain, as required by REACH.

Intended purposes reported to us will be communicated “upstream” within the supply chain, as required by REACH: The registrants respectively manufacturers are only obliged to inform the downstream users if an utilisation cannot be taken into consideration. There is also no obligation on behalf of the supplier to confirm an utilisation as part of a registration dossier, before a Chemical Safety Assessment (CSA) can be drawed up. An utilisation becomes formally approved, once the registration dossier has been accepted. The approved utilisations are communicated via exposure scenarios in the extended safety data sheets. Safety data sheets and exposure scenarios have to be prepared only for substances and mixtures classified as hazardous. Depending on the registration requirement for each substance and supplier this process may take up to 2018.

We kindly ask you for your understanding, in case we will not be able to issue a confirmation in every single case.

It goes without saying that NOVESIA meets all requirements of applicable laws on chemicals.
