Standards

REACH

Reach is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007. Reach will require all companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances into the European Union in quantities of one ton or more per year to register these substances, unless specifically exempted.
Hawai Italia has not implemented any pre-registration and/or registration as it does not produce or import chemicals. However, as a downstream user, the company has sent request for adjustment to the Reach Regulation to its suppliers.
