Huntsman’s REACH Commitment
For the team at Huntsman, REACH is not simply a matter of registering products. Compliance and a commitment to product safety are central to our business and deeply embedded in our Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) program.
We support REACH and its objectives, which are consistent with our own corporate philosophy and strategic ‘20:20 Vision’: To provide innovative solutions, which enrich lives through innovation, and help create a sustainable future, with no harm to people or the environment.
At Huntsman, we have established a REACH Implementation Team (RIT), a group of in-house experts whose knowledge and dedication ensures that our legal obligations are met and that we can build competitive advantage for our customers. Actively engaged in the European chemical industry’s journey to a single regulatory system, the RIT helps guide industry consortia; serves as Lead Registrant for key substances; and works closely with our own supply-chain partners to ensure that milestones are met on time.
Huntsman is managing its registrations and proactively preparing for other REACH developments, including any restrictions and authorization. In addition, we are using and optimizing our in-house systems to manage the long-term compliance with REACH affecting new product development, new substances and changing suppliers. Throughout, we will continue to liaise with customers, partners and industry contacts to ensure timely and effective resolution of any new REACH issues, and thus ensure continuous compliance.
