EU safety data sheets are not required for Hostaphan® and Diafoil® under Article 31 of the new “REACH” regulation, 1907/2006. Our products also contain no SVHCs for which communication is required down the supply chain under Articles 32 and 33 of the REACH regulation (“Substances of Very High Concern”, SVHC candidate list ).
We do not expect that the status of our products to change as the REACH regulation is phased in and substances are registered. But in the unlikely case that the status were to change,
we commit to inform European customers who purchased the affected product in the previous 12 months of the change in writing.
The required format of “safety data sheets” in the EU is designed for communicating chemical dangers—which are not posed by our products—and is thus not well suited for physical objects such as our film products. As REACH came into force in 2007, Mitsubishi Polyester Film replaced our old EU format safety data sheets with more concise and pertinent documents on safe handling.
