EC regulation No. 1907/2006, known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), seeks to protect human health and the environment through the regulation of chemical substances.
QuickLabel Systems recently asked an independent European consultancy to determine whether we are obligated under REACH to register our printing chemicals, including our Vivo!

We find that QuickLabel Systems is not obligated under REACH to pre-register any substance used in our printing supplies for the following reasons:
QuickLabel Systems will continue to monitor the import of our products to Europe. At such time as the volume of an imported chemical substance exceeds one ton per year, QuickLabel Systems will re-evaluate our registration status.
