Compliance to European Legislation No 1907/2006 REACH Directive

CherrySource Ltd t/a RubberBandsUK is fully aware of the European Legislation No 1907/2006 REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) that came into force on the 1st of June 2007 and we committed to comply with legal obligations of this directive.

We understand that all Rubber Band products do not normally contain any substances that appear on the candidate list for REACH. The pre-registration or registration of any substances lies with our up-stream suppliers and we have implemented procedures to ensure that they also comply with current legislation (and any future versions) and that we receive confirmation of this.

As part of our due diligence our suppliers have provided us with a signed statement to confirm that all products supplied to us contain NONE of the products specified in the REACH SVHC (Substances of VERY HIGH CONCERN) list.

We will continue to monitor this situation for future changes or amendments to the regulations or candidate list.
