OEKO-TEX & REACH
It is essential we help to preserve a sustainable environment for future generations. At TRANEMO we work according to an established environmental policy, and our aim is to continuously reduce our environmental impact.
TRANEMO products are made from fabrics and accessories that meet the requirements of REACH. REACH is an EU regulation on chemicals legislation and the abbreviation stands for: Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals. ECHA is the European Chemicals Agency, and in Sweden the Swedish Chemicals Agency has primary responsibility for applying the REACH regulation.
To ensure that TRANEMO products meet all the requirements of REACH, we use a Restricted Substances List (RSL) which all our suppliers must sign and comply with. The TRANEMO RSL is a list of all substances and the requirements and limit values under European legislation. In addition to REACH, TRANEMO uses its RSL to comply with all current EU regulations, such as the Persistent Organic Pollutants Regulation (POPs) and the Biocides Regulation. Our RSL also allows us to ensure that our suppliers comply with the Candidate List for substances of extremely high concern (SVHCs).
TRANEMO is a member of the Chemicals Group at RISE IVF, which means we can keep up to date with the latest developments in research and legislation. In collaboration with RISE, the TRANEMO RSL is updated twice a year to ensure that we comply with restrictions and updated legislation as recommended by the Chemicals Group.
In addition, most of the fabrics and accessories that TRANEMO uses are certified to class 2 of the Oeko-Tex® standard 100. Oeko-Tex® is an independent third-party certification process that ensures control of harmful or hazardous chemicals.
