REACh – Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals
The first phase of REACh was a pre-registration of chemical substances. Pre-registration meant that manufacturers of chemical substances could take advantage of the benefits which was connected with the transition regulation. Now the registration phase is ongoing. Our suppliers have pre-registered and / or registered all substances contained in our products.
FUCHS LUBRICANTS SWEDEN AB is a downstream blender and does not manufacture any chemical components. This means that Fuchs Lubricants, do not register any substances/components or products.
We have a continuous surveillance of how REACh progresses among our suppliers and will inform our customers if there will be any inconveniences due to REACh.
The vast majority of our products do not contain any SVHC components or components present on the Candidate list. (SVHC= Substances of Very High Concern).
If a product contains a SVHC component or a component that is present in the Candidate list, it is declared in the safety data sheet. For example a few of our metalworking products do contain boric acid salts. Boric acid is present on the Candidate list.
NB: Decisions about our product portfolio depends on many various factors, of with REACh is just one.
We hereby certify that none of our products contain the substances mentioned in directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS)
