REACH - New review

REACH - Regulation (EC) 1907/2006

With a review dated 27th of June 2018, ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) has included metallic lead (Pb) in the list of the highly concerned substances (SVHC) according REACH (Regulation 1907/2006) due to its harmonized hazard classification basis as "Toxic for reproduction" (category 1A).

The semi-finished products produced by Almag Spa are classified as "Articles" under the Reach Regulation Article 3 (3) and are not subject to safety data sheet arrangement according to article 31 same regulation. However ALMAG SpA has arranged a "product form" that includes standard obligations and enough information to guarantee product safety in standard and expectable conditions of use.


Regarding the article life cycle, if disposal of production offcut is made as "WASTE", it is highly recommended to ensure that they are correctly classified according to current legislation. In case of placing on the market as "BY-PRODUCTS" it is recommended to pay attention to national legislation obligations and current Reach and CLP regulations.
