Frequently Asked Questions
1.To which territories does REACH apply?
REACH is a European Community Regulation that directly applies in all articles sold in any of the Member States of the European Union. REACH is of EEA (European Economic Area) relevance as it has been incorporated into the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This means that REACH also applies in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
2.Whay are the obligations of non-EEA companies?
Manufacturers established outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not have direct obligations under the REACH Regulation. It is the importer established within the EEA who needs to comply with the REACH obligations. For Husqvarna to fulfil its legal requirements concerning REACH, non-EEA suppliers to companies in the Husqvarna need to provide this information to Husqvarna.
