The "asbestos free" requirement is regulated by the REACH Regulation (EC)1907/2006. PULS confirms compliance with REACH to your customers by means of product-specific M-CoCs (= Materials Certificate of Conformity).
Point 6 of Annex XVII to the REACH Regulation (formerly: Annex 1 to Directive 76/769/EEC) prohibits the distribution and use of asbestos and products containing asbestos, with the following specific exceptions for chrysotile. According to point 29 of Annex XVII of this Regulation, the mass content of asbestos must be below 0.1% in substances and preparations distributed for sale and marketed to the general public. In addition, Annex XVII to the REACH Regulation sets out specific requirements for the labelling of products containing asbestos.
