REACH is a European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances.

Lancashire Sock Manufacturing Company is a supplier of "articles" as defined in REACH. The "substances" that are contained in these articles are not intentionally released, nor do the articles contain any of the substances on the current SVHC Candidate List of Substances.

Concerning the other substances, which are needed in the production of the products supplied to you, we are dependent as a downstream user upon the registration by the manufacturer or importer. We have ensured as far as possible that all substances we use in our processes either on their own or in preparations are pre-registered or registered by our suppliers within the prescribed period.

While our products do not currently fall within the scope of REACH's registration requirement, we continue to monitor the EU regulations for changes that may require our attention.

Lancashire Sock Manufacturing Company is fully supportive of the various industry efforts throughout the world to phase out the use of undesirable elements from materials and manufacturing processes.

Lancashire Sock Manufacturing Company remains committed to continually reducing its impact on the world's natural environment, and we work closely with our customers and suppliers to identify and rapidly eliminate hazardous substances from our products.

Be assured that your business is greatly valued by Lancashire Sock Manufacturing Company and that we will do everything within our power to provide you with the highest level of service and support.
