Reach statement for Attwater Manufactured Products
The (REACH) European Chemicals regulation entered into force in June 2007. The REACH regulation requires substances manufactured or imported into the European Union (EU), including substances in preparations in quantities over one metric ton per year, to be registered unless exempt.
There is a transitional period for completion of the registration process and existing substances will be phased in over a number of years up to 2010, 2013, and 2018, (depending on the annual quantity produced or sold and the hazard of the substance.) The pre-registration period open to EU manufacturers and importers closed in November 2008. This Pre-registration allowed continued manufacture and import into the EU prior to the registration deadline.
