REACH statement          

Registration Evaluation and Authorisation (and restriction) of Chemicals (REACH) came into force in June 2007. REACH has several aims, including the provision of a high level of protection for human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.

REACH aims to make the people who place chemicals in the market (manufactures and importers) responsible for the understanding and managing the risks associated with their use.

ACTE A/S is a Distributor and Agent for manufacturers of Electronic Components and Wireless Technologies.

The products that ACTE A/S currently supplies do not intend to release chemicals.

We have confirmed this with our suppliers for whom we import.

ACTE A/S will review the products on a regular basis should the portfolio change.
