REACH Supplier Auditing Services
Intertek’s auditing solutions will help ensure that the desired processes and procedures for REACH compliance are being met.
For a product to be REACH compliant, its constituent components must be REACH compliant. Where access to the composition is not available for constituent components, supply chains and suppliers must provide evidence and declarations to prove to their customers that they meet the REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemical Substances – EC1907/2006) requirements.
Although, these declarations provide only limited assurance. Chain of custody control should therefore be an important part of any REACH compliance strategy. Plus a balanced process of engagement and involvement of the supply chain, supported by auditing and monitoring, needs to be implemented to control risk and costs.
“Information relating to health, safety and environmental properties, risks and risk management measures is required to be passed both down and up the supply chain, and between all actors in that supply chain." - REACH in Brief, Environment Directorate General, European Commission
Intertek’s auditing solutions will help ensure that the desired processes and procedures for REACH compliance are being followed. Intertek will consolidate the audit findings, and send the customer and the supplier a REACH performance report.
The Intertek REACH Audit will:
- Determine REACH-readiness of suppliers
- Evaluate supplier’s methods of information collection and storage
- Score suppliers for performance against a quantitative set of criteria
If support is needed, Intertek can also support suppliers and customers by:
- Preparing notification documentation and submissions to EU when required
