HELLENIC PETROLUEM Group, in respect with the fundamental principle of REACH on the effective management of the hazards of substances, has integrated full REACH compliance into its activities.
We participate in various REACH Consortia, joining our efforts with other Companies for the completion of the whole REACH project, including registration, evaluation and authorization, with the application of the Community competition rules.
We update -according to REACH article 22- our registration dossiers when revisions of chemical safety reports or/and hazard classification occur due to new toxicological and eco toxicological data or whenever this is required by ECHA’s decisions during evaluation of dossiers and substances according to REACH processes.
The Safety Data Sheets of our products have been updated according to REACH and CLP (Classification, Labeling and Packaging) Regulations. The new extended Safety Data Sheets (e-SDSs) contain in their annex the exposure scenarios for human health and environment per identified use, as well as the recommended risk management measures to downstream users. The e-SDSs are being updated according to article 31(9) of REACH.
When designing new lubricants, all REACH and CLP requirements are taken into consideration to ensure their safe use and proper classification, labelling and packaging.
The Group’s facilities apply best operational practices regarding the safe management of the products, with respect to the environment. All the facilities implement Quality, Occupational Health & Safety and Environmental Management Systems, aiming to meet the needs and the expectations of all stakeholders and to achieve continual improvement.
