REACHOn the safe side with Rhenus Lub

REACH is the European regulation concerning the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals. It is one of the strictest and most progressive regulations on chemicals in the world. All raw materials and additives in rhenus high-performance lubricants are registered in accordance with the strict REACH provisions. This guarantees our customers absolute safety according to the latest requirements.

Protecting people and the environment

REACH ensures better protection for people and the environment against the risks posed by chemical substances. REACH also enables chemicals to be circulated freely on the single market while promoting competition and innovation. That is why Rhenus Lub enters into continuous dialogue with other lubricant manufacturers in pan-European consortia, ensuring that all chemical products used in rhenus high-performance lubricating greases and coolants are the subject of proactive research, documentation and registration. This guarantees our customers that all rhenus products made available are of the high quality that they expect. After all, REACH and Rhenus Lub are pursuing the same goal: namely, to improve safety for people and the environment.

Improving safety through transparency

According to REACH, new substances are not permitted to be manufactured in the EU or imported into the EU in quantities of more than one ton per year without first being registered. The following rule applies: “No data, no market”. Registration of a substance considers its entire life-cycle, as well as its compliance with specific requirements for ensuring it is used safely. Rhenus Lub takes a consistent approach to implementing these requirements: All raw materials and additives used in rhenus high-performance lubricants are registered at the earliest opportunity in accordance with the strict REACH provisions — to improve safety through transparency.

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)

The EU Directive 2011/65/EU serves to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. It regulates the use and placing on the market of hazardous substances in electrical equipment and electronic components. In connection with the use of lubricating greases and cooling lubricants, we confirm that, according to current knowledge, all preparations* produced by Rhenus Lub comply with Directive 2011/65/EU and the extension 2015/863/EU.
