The Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation addresses the production and use of chemical substances and potential impact on health and the environment.
Chemours and REACH
We are working in close collaboration with our suppliers to fulfill the requirements of the legislation.
In the best interest of making existing supply chains fully REACH compliant, Chemours expects from its direct and indirect suppliers that all substances contained in products supplied to Chemours and requiring registration have been pre-registered on time. We also expect our suppliers to ensure that those substances requiring registration have been or will be registered in due time by our supplier/relevant up-stream supplier/s.
We invite our suppliers to engage with Chemours in a constructive communication process, so that Chemours uses shall be included as an identified use in the registration of our supplier.
For a full view of REACH implementation, we suggest that you access the REACH Navigator prepared by the European Chemicals Agency.
Chemours REACH General Statement
Chemours successfully complied with the 2010, 2013 and 2018 registration deadlines. All products sold by Chemours to our EEA customers by Chemours legal entities in Europe¹ are compliant with REACH regulatory requirements. All necessary substances of the Chemours portfolio have been registered under REACH either by Chemours or by a supplier, or are exempt from REACH registration. Where required, European SDSs are being updated to be consistent with the information in the REACH registration.
Each importer is responsible for his own compliance with REACH; Chemours products sold to customers outside of EEA may not necessarily be compliant with REACH requirements.
To fully understand the obligations that you as our customer have under REACH, we recommend that you consult the ECHA website.
