EC Regulation 1907/2006/EC (REACh)

REACH EU Regulation 1907/2006

REACh= Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals

Registration, evaluation and authorisation of chemicals

Chemicals policy was comprehensively restructured with these elements. REACh has been in force since June 2007 and regulates chemicals law in Europe. Its goal is to protect people and the environment as well as to centrally record all information about chemical substances in Europe.


For the first time, a chemicals law also covers substances in products. As a manufacturer of products, Festo is therefore obliged to provide information if substances of very high concern (SVHC) are part of Festo products.

Information about SVHCs (Substances of Very High Concern) in products

All products produced after August 2012 contain no SVHCs of the current candidate list above 0.1 weight by weight.


Information about the date of manufacture can be found on the rating plate:
