ENVIRONMENTAL AND QUALITY POLICY.
Bear Química, S.A. is a company dedicated to the design, manufacture and sale of water-based emulsions and resins for a market that is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of quality and environmental conservation. We have taken on the challenge of introducing a policy aimed at the control and minimisation of any environmental impact that might be caused by our activities, accompanied by continuous improvement of quality, in terms of both our products and the services offered to our customers.
To this end Bear Química S.A. have, at each and every level of our organisation, adopted an Environmental Management and Qualities System derived from the application of the International Standards EN ISO 14001:2004, EN ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/TS 16949:2002.
The REACH Regulation, which concerns the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals for the purpose of guaranteeing the highest level of protection of human health and the environment, along with the free circulation of chemical substances and mixtures on the internal market and, while at the same time promoting the replacement of the most dangerous substances whenever technically and economically viable alternatives exist.
The main responsibilities of the Regulation essentially concern the manufacturers and importers of substances, who have the obligation to present a registration dossier for each substance that includes information on its dangers and the possible risks arising from its use. REACH, depending on the danger of each substance and the annual quantities produced, establishes the cut-off dates and the requirements that must be met for their registration. Intermediate users must not sell or use any substance that is not registered and must also make available the flow of information through the supply chain, along with the supply of updated information to their customers in order to allow for the safe use of the substances and blends.
Bear Química is committed to compliance with the REACH Regulation, and as a result we have established a management system that takes into account both the requirements and the deadlines for the registrations anticipated for each substance, along with the need to communicate with suppliers and customers in order to favour the flow of information through the supply chain and make available the information necessary to ensure the safe use of our products.
