We are working in close collaboration with our suppliers on fulfilling the requirements of the legislation.
In the best interest of getting existing supply chains fully REACH compliant, DuPont expects from its direct and indirect suppliers that all substances, contained in products supplied to DuPont and requiring registration will be pre-registered (between 1 June - 1 December 2008). We also expect our suppliers to ensure that those substances requiring registration will be registered in due time by our supplier / relevant up-stream supplier/s.
We invite our suppliers to engage with DuPont in a constructive communication process, so that DuPont uses shall be included as an identified use in the registration of our supplier.
For a full view of REACH implementation, we suggest that you access the REACH Navigator prepared by the European Chemicals Agency: http://reach.jrc.it/navigator_en.htm
