All raw materials and auxiliary products are carefully tested before they can be used in Group operating units.
These tests seek to identify potentially unacceptable risks to human health and/or the environment. This assessment is performed on a centralised basis and carried out in all countries where Pirelli operates, taking account not only of the requirements imposed by European regulations concerning the management of hazardous substances, but also know-how currently available worldwide (specifications, databases, etc.).
Monitoring of producers and suppliers of raw materials used by the Group continues, especially in regard to the registration processes of these substances by producers/distributors/importers and in compliance with Regulation CE REACH 1907/2006.
