The handling of hazardous substances has always required the identification and, where applicable, implementation of information about their storage and use. To standardize these regulations throughout Europe (and also with a view to global standardization), the European Union has now issued far-reaching regulations, which are regularly updated.
These include regulations such as REACH (Regulation (EC) 1907/2006) or CLP (Regulation (EC) 1272/2008), but also regulations concerning the export and import of hazardous chemicals (Regulation (EC) 649/2012).
In addition to chemicals legislation, other requirements such as product legislation (e.g. Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment - RoHS) or waste legislation (e.g. Directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment - WEEE) may be of relevance.
The plethora of these regulations and corresponding national transpositions, from laws to technical rules, make it difficult for companies to identify all the necessary measures in good time and to implement them in their operations.
We provide individual assistance to our customers in handling substances, mixtures or articles (products) and answer questions on REACH and CLP as well as on the implementation of the current Gefahrstoffverordnung (Ordinance on Hazardous Substances - GefStoffV).
