The European Union’s Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals was formally adopted on 18th December 2006, and came info force on 1st June 2007.
REACH aims to enhance the protection of human life and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the hazardous properties of chemical substances and better management of the risks through their use.
Fiscal Metering Consultants Ltd is affected by the REACH Regulations in the following ways:-
- Internal usage of chemicals and chemical products within its business
- As a producer of products
Internal controls for the safety of our personnel are covered within our Business Management System. However REACH also requires suppliers of articles to provide recipients with information on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) if those are present above a concentration of 0.1% on an article level and the substances are intended to be released during normal and reasonably foreseeable conditions of use of the article.
As such Fiscal Metering Consultants policy is that all products shall be delivered with a REACH and SVHC statement, and that this is also available for download from the website on the individual product download pages. Since the SVHC candidate list is an evolving list, FMCL have adopted the following symbol which includes the date of last candidate list updates reviewed at time of original design or subsequent reappraisal.:-
