● Compliance with National and International Laws and Regulations Regarding Environment
SIO Automotive's manufacturing processes comply with related national and international laws and regulations, during whole product life cycle. This is ensured and controlled on ISO 14001 basis.
In this respect, SIO AUTOMOTIVE fully complies with the below regulation;
REACH – Regulation of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals
REACH is a comprehensive regulation of the European Union, it is about the management of chemicals and was released in 2007. It brings responsibilites to the whole chain from raw material supplier to the finished product seller.
They must identify and manage the risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market in the EU. They have to demonstrate how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users.
In SIO Automotive, we support this regulation as a very important important legal process to protect environment and human health, and to ensure chemical consumption is registered and controlled, while providing the related information to the users.
