Substituting High-Risk Chemicals
AF-COLOR implemented REACH in June 2007. The REACH Regulation places responsibility on industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on substances. Manufacturers and importers are required to gather information on the properties of their chemical substances, which will allow their safe handling, and to register the information in a central database in the European Chemicals Agency. One of the goals of REACH is the progressive substitution of the most dangerous chemicals (referred to as “substances of very high concern”) when suitable alternatives have been identified. AF-COLOR is REACH compliant and has implemented requirements as per legislation.
Our goal is to be one of the best in the industry. This encompasses environmental aspects, just as much as it involves our highly trained, highly motivated employees – from the production line right through to the company’s entire service chain. Only then do we achieve our high degree of flexibility, whilst maintaining a high level of product quality and productivity aimed at meeting our customers’ high standards.
