REACH, the European Union's Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals legislation, and the impact it will have on the future availability of chemicals is of vital importance for Ashland, our customers and the entire global chemical industry. As a Responsible Care company with a longstanding commitment to product stewardship and the practice of making health, safety and environmental protection an integral part of the entire life cycle of chemical products, we have actively supported the objectives of REACH before and since the legislation passed.
As a major supplier, manufacturer, importer and purchaser of chemical substances in the European Union (EU), our first priority is to comply with the REACH regulations as well as to ensure the supply of goods to us and to our customers is not disrupted. Ashland teams are in place and committed to cooperating with our customers and suppliers to support the successful implementation of REACH. This includes coordinating the exchange of information across the supply chain, from suppliers and manufacturers to customers and end users.
The entire Ashland organization, including our operations based in Europe, Asia, the U.S. or other geographies, is actively supporting the implementation of REACH as an effective legislation in the spirit of which it was designed – to protect human health and the environment by providing information across the supply chain supporting the safe use of chemicals and chemical substances.
Additional compliance commitments
When other regulatory requirements are enacted, such as the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS/CLP), we will ensure that our Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and any other related documentation are updated and provided in full compliance with these regulations.
