Antalis and European REACH regulation

The European Regulation 1907/2006 relates to the Recording, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Hazardous substances (REACH), which came into force on 1st June 2007. There are several stages required to conform, and the regulatory requirements vary depending on the nature of the products or the quantity in the European market.



Antalis, as a distributor, does not have any pre-registration or registration obligation under REACH.

Antalis does, of course, work closely with its suppliers to ensure that they, along with their own suppliers, complete the necessary formalities regarding the chemical substances they use, and will continue to do so in the future.

REACH regulation also includes an information duty for certain products containing a “Substance of Very High Concern” (SVHC)* with a concentration higher than 0.1%m/m

On the basis of our current knowledge and the specific information provided by our suppliers, only a very small group of products in the Antalis range contain such substances. The list of these products and all the necessary details are available on demand and are updated upon receipt of new information from suppliers.

Our sales teams are available to answer any questions you might have on this topic.
