MENTOR STATEMENT ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals)
With regard to REACH legislation, we regularly receive queries formulated with very different interpretations and understandings of the activities within the scope of REACH. Depending on the view of the querying customer,
binding commitment to the activity and to their own protection is required to a greater or lesser extent. Our viewpoint with regard to the activities or measures required within the scope of REACH is as follows:
1.
Manufacturers of substances, importers of substances as such or of substances in preparations in the European Community (EC) and in the European Economic Area (EEA) must register these substances with the European Chemicals Agency as of 1 June 2008, if they are produced or imported in quantities of at least 1 t/a and they are not substances that are excluded from the duty of registration. So-called "phase-in substances", such as substances that are listed in the European Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances (EINECS), can be pre-registered in the period from 1 June 2008 to 1 December 2008. Pre-registered substances only need to be registered at a later time, depending on the production/import quantity.
2.
Suppliers of substances or preparations must provide the customer with either a safety data sheet (article 31) or a safety information sheet (article 32). In certain cases, the safety data sheet must be supplemented with an appendix with relevant exposure scenarios (“extended safety data sheet”).
3.
Manufacturers and importers of products that contain more than 0.1 mass-% per product of a substance listed on the so-called “candidate list” must, on request, provide the professional customer and end consumers with sufficient information for safe use of the product, or at least the name of the substance. If more than 1 t/a of the substance is contained in all these products, a notification must be submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), at the earliest from 1 June 2011.
4.
Users of chemicals (substances and preparations), known as “downstream users”, must meet additional obligations with effect from 1 June 2008, yet only following receipt of an extended safety data sheet. Downstream users can provide useful information for registration to support the manufacturers of substances and the importers of substances and preparations.
Declaration
You shall obtain only non-chemical products from us. In addition, under normal and reasonable foreseeable usage conditions, no substances should be released from the products purchased by you.

The responsible body, ECHA (European Chemicals Agency), continuously updates the candidate list with substances of concern. The current status of the SVHC (substance of very high concern) candidate list with the incoming supplier information is checked here. Should any SVHC substances be contained in our product, the customer will be informed about the substance in question.
