REACH Capabilities

The regulation (EC) No 1907/ 2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Regulation, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) entered into force on June 1 2007. KLEN International is aware of, and agrees with the purpose of REACH which is to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment. KLEN International is compliant with all applicable requirements of REACH and upon request shall provide information regarding the chemical composition of our products.

Manufacturers or importers into Europe are obligated under Article 33 of REACH to inform recipients of any articles that contain chemicals on the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) candidate list in concentrations greater than 0.1% by weight. REACH requires downstream users to ensure that their customers (for example, other industrial enterprises and consumers) have the information they need to be able to use their products safely. Distributors are obliged to ensure that all relevant substance safety information is provided with the preparations and articles that they sell and that there are no restricted substances in the products that they sell.
