Our company submits to a careful evaluation the substances present in the raw materials used, in order to identify and communicate the possible presence of substances contained in the Candidate List, whose updates are constantly monitored
The possible presence of these substances is indicated in the MSDS, even in case of concentrations below the limits, and is communicated to our customers through specific Declarations
In addition to the provisions of the REACH regulation, over the years Franchi&Kim has implemented various initiatives aimed at improving the use and management of the chemical substances included in the company production cycle.
