The Paragon Group works with suppliers to ensure our chemical products are in full compliance of REACH (Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) legislation that came into force across the EU in 2007.
REACH legislation replaces the former legislative framework for chemicals in the EU. REACH shifts the responsibility from public authorities to industry with regards to assessing and managing the risks posed by chemicals and providing appropriate safety information for their users.
The Paragon Group works with suppliers to ensure that our chemical products are in full compliance of REACH [Regulatory (EC) Number 1907 (2006)].
The main aims of REACH are to ensure a high level of protection for human health and the environment, including the promotion of alternative test methods, as well as the free circulation of substances on the internal market and the enhancement of competitiveness and innovation.
In line with this legislation, our suppliers of raw materials have carried out the necessary pre-registration of chemical substances used in our products.
Products produced for Paragon Products (UK) Ltd are ‘preparations’ (blends of substances) and therefore do not need to be pre-registered themselves as part of REACH.
Paragon will continue to liaise with suppliers to ensure that they comply with the registration requirements set out by REACH over the coming years. Further information is available from the European Commission.
