Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)
REACH, the most significant change in the European Union’s (EU) chemical management history, went into effect in June 2007. While REACH started out as an EU regulation, it has been adopted in similar formats by other countries and applies to materials coming into the region from around the world, making the law a global compliance matter.
REACH aims to better protect human health and the environment as well as enhance competitiveness by fostering innovation. Vishay Precision Group, Inc. supports the principle of a more effective chemicals regulatory system in order to deliver sustainable health and environmental safety benefits to its stakeholders.
Vishay Precision Group, Inc. has notified substances in its current portfolio for which it has responsibilities and obligations to do so under REACH and is working with raw material suppliers and downstream customers to ensure compliance. Vishay Precision Group, Inc. continues to actively monitor REACH activity to prevent supply-chain disruption and encourage eco-friendly manufacturing.
