Declaration in accordance with EC Regulation No. 1907/2006 on the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of Chemicals (REACH Regulation)
The European REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, and Authorisation of Chemicals) has been in force since 1 June 2007. REACH primarily affects the manufacturers, importers and dealers of chemical products, but in certain circumstances also affects companies who use chemicals in the broadest sense.
Durbal Metallwarenfabrik GmbH is a downstream user for the purposes of the EU Regulation, as we are neither a manufacturer, importer or dealer of chemical products. The chemicals we use in our production (e.g. lubricants and greases) do not reach the lower threshold of 1 tonne per annum, which means we are not obliged under the EU Regulation to register or maintain technical files on them.
In order to ensure in our own interests and the interests of our customers that we are acting within the scope of the aforementioned Regulation, we maintain an up-to-date list of agents and hazardous substances, in which we record and update the annual quantities of chemicals we use.
In accordance with our ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certification, we are in constant dialogue with our suppliers, among other things to ensure that all products supplied comply with REACH.
We will of course be pleased to answer any queries you may have.
