We would like to draw your attention to the new chemicals legislation that was issued across Europe during the last years.

These legislations, known as REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (Registration Evaluation Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) and CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (Classification, Labeling and Packaging), will have a significant impact on a wide range of industries, including our own.

The regulation is complex and affects all manufactures, importers and downstream users in the European Union, requiring their joint collaboration across the supply chain.

It is essential for users of chemical substances to know if suppliers (manufacturer / importer) will register and notify the substances they require, confirming that they will be available in the future and that their specific uses will be covered by the registration. It is also essential for suppliers to be informed about downstream applications and exposure information for the respective substances, in order to be able to incorporate them in the required chemical safety report, if substances are classified.

Alro is committed to meeting all the legal obligations under REACH and CLP, as a manufacturer, importer and downstream user and has started the registration process. We have established a REACH team at Alro to deal with all the requirements of these legislations. Moreover Alro is a member of the REACH Consortium, formed by the European Aluminium Association (EAA), which prepares the full dossier for aluminium, aluminium oxide and aluminium hydroxide.

We would like to assure you that as a supplier of aluminium and aluminium alloy products:

  1. We have pre-registered manufactured and imported substances in order to benefit from the transitional periods provided by the pre-registration under REACH.
  2. We have checked, and will continue to check, that our suppliers, or any party up the supply chain, are willing to undertake the responsibility of the registration of the applicable substances in order to grant supply to our customers.
  3. We are going to register manufactured substances.
  4. Alro fully understands the business implication and impact of REACH and understands that if we do not comply with the regulations, we will no longer be able to service the aluminium market.
