Because little or nothing is known about the possible negative effects of chemical substances on people and the environment, there is uncertainty about the quality and safety of living and working environments. Moreover, it appears that the available information is insufficiently communicated, i.e. there is insufficient communication from producer to buyer to consumer and vice versa. As a result, it is difficult for both producers and users to take responsibility. The purpose of REACH is to solve these problems.

The abbreviation for REACH stands for Registration, evaluation and authorization of chemical substances. In concrete terms, REACH means that a company must know the risks and measures that must be taken with regard to the safe use of chemical substances of all substances that it produces, processes or passes on to customers.

The purpose of REACH is to ensure a high level of safety for people and the environment in the production, transmission and processing of chemical substances. The responsibility for working safely shifts to the business community with REACH.

REACH will make information available about used substances and improve communication about these substances (from producer to end user). This REACH objective fits in perfectly with the strategic business objectives of NanoProf's Holland©

Anyone who professionally produces, imports, distributes or uses chemical substances or preparations in the EU is covered by the new REACH regulations. Not only NanoProf's © itself, but also our suppliers and you as our customer are confronted with REACH.

Companies can play different roles (producer, importer, distributor and / or user). Each individual role entails different obligations. A company must determine what role it plays within REACH.8

NanoProf's Holland© also has different roles:

NanoProf's Holland© in the role of applicator/distribute functions as well as an information channel. We provide information about exposure scenarios and control measures to you as a user of our products through our safety data sheets and MSDS sheets.

We request information from our suppliers about the use of the chemicals. The aim is to realize identified uses and to clarify the hazard aspects for the supplier. But you as our customer also have their own responsibility under REACH. You must take into account the recommended risk mitigation measures. In addition, you must report the use of the chemicals to the supplier, including the information on exposure scenarios. NanoProf's Holland© takes a proactive position in the approach to the REACH project. We will keep you informed of our progress. However, if you have any questions CONTACT US.
