We are aware of the requirements presented by REACH-VO (1907/2006/EG). As you know, REACH regulates the manufacturing, sales and handling of industrial chemicals. We would like to take this opportunity to make clear that we have taken all the action necessary, as required by the new REACH regulations, in order to continue to provide you with the level of quality, product spectrum and speed of supply that you are accustomed to from Gummi-Plast.
With respect to the products that we sell or utilise in our manufacturing processes – which are produced in the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or the European Union (EU) – we can state that at this time our suppliers and respectively, their upstream supply chain, have also taken action to fulfil all the required pre-registration and registration requirements.
To this end, we have sent out the appropriate correspondence well ahead of the pre-registration phase (June 1 to November 11, 2008) and we are optimistic about the timely conclusion of the appropriate documentation.
The products that are produced by our partner companies outside of the European Union on our behalf fall under the auspices of paragraph Art. 3 Nr. 3 REACH-VO. It should, however, be expressly noted that the emission of substances, pursuant to Art. 7 Abs. 1 REACH-VO, from the products we provide is not intended. Moreover, the composition and quality requirements of our products are based on longevity and durable physical characteristics.
With regard to the upcoming communications requirements and procedures for authorisation and/or restrictions, we have not ascertained any restrictions at the current time. Nonetheless, if we were to receive any information from our suppliers pertaining to restrictions, that we would forward this information on to you without delay.
In conclusion, we would like to add that we are constantly striving to implement the necessary preparations and measures, such as in the case of REACH, well ahead of the time compliance becomes legally binding in order to ensure that you can always count on the products and service that you are accustomed to receiving from us.
If you should have any questions or require any further information, please don't hesitate to contact us. We will get you the answers you need.
