Beneq REACH Declaration

Jan 31, 2018

EU REACH

REACH is a European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use
(1907/2006/EC). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances. The new law entered into force on 1 June 2007 and will be phased in until 2018. The aim of REACH is to further improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of certain chemical substances. It is legislation from the European Union, and applies to all suppliers (inside and outside Europe) who want to sell, import or manufacture chemicals and/or products containing certain chemicals into the European Union.

Beneq Oy supports the objective of REACH to further improve the European Union’s regulation on chemicals, including the aim to advance public health and safety and to protect the environment. The limited number of chemicals that we import ourselves at our Espoo, Finland EL glass facility has been entered into the pre-registration process already. Additionally, we have requested our component or finished products suppliers to provide us information on the relevant chemicals in their supplied products. This enables us to provide our customers with information about designated substances of very high concern
(SVHC), as required by article 33 of REACH (if those are present in a concentration of more than 0.1% of the weight of a product).

Beneq Oy is committed to working with our suppliers and customers to ensure continued supply of our products. We do not anticipate any disruptions of product supplies to our customers. Based on our internal assessment using available guidance and statements from our suppliers, we believe that none of our products contain substances that are intended to be released under normal and reasonable foreseeable conditions of use.

Based on this information does not contain substances listed in SVHC list above the threshold limit.
