Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) are chemical compounds showing properties which according to the REACH Regulation may have serious effects on human health and the environment. Such substances are subject to special approval and information requirements. Substances so far identified as SVHC are recorded by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in its SVHC list acc. to Article 59(1) of the REACH Regulation. Moreover, the Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP) keeps and updates a list of substances with certain hazardous properties to be evaluated within three years.
Raw materials selected according to strict criteria
Klüber Lubrication does not use any substances on the SVHC list. For substances which will be included in the CoRAP, we immediately start a substitution process. During the transitional period, we inform our customers in time and in detail on the basis of the legal regulations.
Our commitment to offering eco-compatible speciality lubricants goes far beyond that: We exclusively use raw materials which comply with the high safety standards defined by the Freudenberg Group to protect people and the environment. These safety criteria ban significantly more substances than stipulated by law.
