As a leader in global healthcare, our goal is to create and develop products that preserve and enhance lives. A fundamental focus of this goal is ensuring that our products are safe and effective, and that they deliver the intended benefits.
Many governments around the world have been implementing new laws and regulations to control the use of certain chemical substances in manufactured products. Some of these laws include:
• The Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH)
• Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
• The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
We ask our suppliers to complete a Restricted Substance Query that includes chemical composition data for all parts provided to Abbott. In cases where complete information is not currently available, the Query requests composition data for the chemical substances currently identified under the regulatory initiatives mentioned above.
For questions on restricted substances, contact Abbott.REACH@abbott.com, our external mailbox monitored daily for communications from customers and suppliers.
