Don't worry about REACh - we will take care of it!

The new EU Regulation for Chemicals REACh (EG) NO. 1907/2006

As defined by REACh, Festool is only a downstream user as we do not manufacture any materials or substances ourselves nor import them to the EU. This means that we, as tool manufacturers, are not directly affected by the duty of registration stipulated in this Regulation. Nevertheless, we have informed all our suppliers about REACh and requested them to comply with their obligations, including the duty of registration, resulting from REACh.

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) also published the list of candidates on 28 Oct. 2008.

No information can be provided yet as to whether any substances on the list of candidates are contained in our products or packing materials at a rate of more than 0.1 per cent by volume, as this requires prior inquiries to our suppliers.


We will continue to initiate all actions required to make sure the products we supply to you have the usual quality – as you can expect from us.
