REACH Statement 2022


The EU REACH Regulation was brought into UK law on 1 January 2021 and is known as UK REACH. UK REACH regulates chemicals placed on the market in UK.

Aims of UK REACH

The aims of UK REACH include:

  • provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals
  • make the people who place chemicals on the market (manufacturers and importers) responsible for understanding and managing the risks associated with their use
  • promote the use of alternative methods for the assessment of the hazardous properties of substances – for example quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) and read across

IrvinGQ LTD annually contact all of our suppliers, to ensure they are compliant with the above regulations and this data is recorded and maintained within our business REACH Register. To the best of our knowledge and belief, none of the products that we sell, contain any of the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC’S) currently on the candidate list in concentrations of >0.1% by weight.

If you do have any specific concerns regarding the composition of a product, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will manage your concerns directly.
