CE marking and REACH
In existence since 1993, CE marking appears on products traded within the European Economic area consisting of the 27 members of the EU as well as the 3 countries in the European Free Trade Association. Under the CPR (Construction Products Regulation) no product, manufactured and supplied in conformity with a Harmonized European Norm (hEN) can be placed on the market from 1st July 2013 unless it carries a CE mark.
Where a Harmonized European Norm exists, all TOTAL bitumen products are CE marked.
What is REACH?
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and restriction of Chemicals) is the EU legislation for the control of chemicals. Its aim is to improve the protection of human health and the environment whilst maintain competiveness within the industry.
At Total Bitumen we are fully committed to the implementation of this regulation and have ensured the necessary human and financial resources are available to do so.
