Declaration on REACH EG-regulation 1907/2006

Registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances (REACH), to create a European Chemicals Agency.

As a manufacturer of products within the meaning of the REACH regulation, AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH is a downstream user. Thus, goods from AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH (products) are not subject to any registration, evaluation or approval requirements. AKO Armaturen & Separationstechnik GmbH is therefore neither subject to registration nor an obligation to create safety data sheets. Based on the information from our suppliers, currently no prohibited substances from the candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHC) above 0.1% by mass are used in the manufacture of our products.

 Information obligation according to Article 33:
In order to comply with our information obligation as a manufacturer of products according to Article 33 of the REACH-regulation and to secure the supply chain, we consistently pursue the implementation of the REACH-regulation at our suppliers. If our delivered products contain one or more substances from the SVHC candidate list in a concentration of more than 0.1% by mass per partial product, we will publish the corresponding information of those products on our website.

Declaration on RoHs EC Directive 2011/65 / EU and 2015/863
