ISO-Certificates Biesterfeld Group
REACH, the European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, came into force on 1st June 2007. It intends to ensure a high level of protection for human health and the environment, while improving the competitiveness and innovation of the chemicals industry within the EU at the same time.
With the REACH regulation having become operative, only (pre-)registered materials may be marketed in the EU. As an importer and distributor of chemicals, Biesterfeld is obliged to comply with these statutory regulations and is responsible for the safe handling of chemicals.
Compliance with REACH regulation
Biesterfeld ensures compliance with the REACH regulation for each movement of goods by means of:
- an extensive materials database with registration information and
- a test system based on this.
Registration under REACH
Depending on the relevance of a material, we carry out our own registrations or assume the regulatory obligations for our non-EU partners.
You can view our own registrations on the ECHA Website.
