The European Union legislation on REACH (Registration, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) is meant to further improve the protection of human health and the environment. It applies to all suppliers (inside and outside of Europe) that want to sell, import or manufacture chemicals and/or products containing certain chemicals within the EU.
Signify applies the REACH objective of further improving and protecting of human health and the environment from a global perspective. Within Signify’s Sustainability program the REACH legislation is part of the over-arching Regulated Substances List (RSL) policy, which governs the activity globally on chemical substances. Our suppliers (pre-)register the chemicals they supply to us, in order to ensure compliance and prevent interruption of the supply flow. The limited number of chemicals that we produce and import has already been entered in the pre-registration process.
