PureNic 99+ now fully REACH reagistered!
We are happy to announce that our pure nicotine is now fully REACH registered, what does it mean?
REACH requires all companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances into the European Union in quantities of one tonne or more per year to register these substances with European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki. Sales of substances, which have not been pre-registered or registered, to the European market is illegal.
REACH also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.
To register, a manufacturer must collect and submit all data on the hazardous properties of substances manufactured or imported in quantities above 1 tonne per year. Submitted data is then evaluated by appropriate authorities. Substances of high concern such as carcirogens or mutagens will have to be authorised by ECHA, which ensures that risks from the use of such substances are either adequately controlled or justified.
Each substance that passes evaluation and authiorisation is considered fully registered with REACH and is given a REACH Registration Numeber. PureNic 99+’s REACH Registration Number is displayed on Safety Data Sheet.
