IAEG REACH Questionnaire

During April 2015, ENVIRON (on behalf of the IAEG) began to send out questionnaires in order to assess the risks associated with REACH. We anticipate that this will be sent to us by many of our customers over the coming weeks and as such have crafted a single response to cover all customers. If you do not take any of the treatments listed, then this response is not applicable.
