REACH is a new European Union chemicals regulation that entered into force on June 1, 2007, with phased deadlines to 2018. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment, and enhance the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. REACH gives greater responsibility to industry to assess the properties of chemicals, manage the health and environment risks, and communicate information to suppliers and users.


HP supports the overall REACH objective of improving the protection of human health and the environment. HP's long standing policy is to provide products and services that are safe to use and environmentally sound throughout their lifecycle. HP will meet all REACH requirements and is committed to providing our customers with information about the chemicals in our products as needed to comply with REACH.
