We are committed to meeting our legal obligations under REACH and have started preparing for it since 2003. A special task force has been built up to coordinate all REACH activities within the Baerlocher group of companies.
Although the REACH legislation has entered into force and the first registration deadline has passed some details need further clarification. A lot of guidelines have been published, but further explanations and interpretations are needed. Baerlocher observes the REACH environment carefully.
We are actively participating in national and international working groups (e.g VCI, ESPA, APAG).
We have pre-registered all of our manufactured or imported substances to guarantee the transition periods.
It is our intention to register our products as much as possible. In this context we are in close contact with our suppliers to ensure that the purchased materials will be registered as well. If certain substances will be phased out, we shall inform our customers accordingly.
