REACH Stands for Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals

The new REACH regulation came into effect on 1 December 2008 and covers the entire chemical industry: manufacturers as well as users and consumers. In future all chemicals will have to be registered and stored with comprehensive information at the ECHA authority set up for this purpose in Helsinki, Finland.  The goal is to establish standardised European legislation for Chemicals.

Within the supply chain, Panacol-Elosol takes the position of users, i.e. we do not produce the chemicals, we only use them as ingredients for our adhesives. To ensure that we will be able to continue to prepare our formulations, we have clarified the preliminary registration of the substances we use with our suppliers.

Because REACH covers the entire lifecycle of a substance, every use within the supply chain must be considered. Panacol-Elosol is therefore continually communicating with the users of its preparations.
