EU REACH Directive & Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

REACH is an EU Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances. The Regulation entered into force on 1 June 2007. The objective of REACH is to ensure that chemicals, during their full life cycle, are managed in ways that no significant risks to man and environment occur. REACH has been designed to manage and control the potential hazards and risks to man and the environment from the manufacture, import and use of chemicals.

Mimaki is aware of the responsibility to be in compliance with the REACH regulations.

As a part of this directive Mimaki Europe provides Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for its products which contain chemical components. The MSDS sheets contain information on safe handling, transport, storage & first aid. These MSDS are updated on a regular basis:
