Managing the use of hazardous substances
Safran focuses on the efficient management of hazardous substances, including the eventual replacement of the most dangerous substances.
Safran applies the new regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Assessment and restriction of Chemical substances) to more efficiently manage toxicity in the substances and materials used throughout the life cycle of our products. We have developed and deployed new tools at each company to meet the requirements of this regulation. Our actions are designed to meet upcoming deadlines, based on the assessments already carried out.
In addition, we have set up a dedicated organization, comprising a Group coordinator and project managers at each company. Our Materials and Processes department, the most heavily involved in this organization, provides technical support for the identification and qualification of replacement products for the most dangerous substances.
Safran is applying the REACh directive in close collaboration with French and European trade associations, including the French aerospace industry association GIFAS, and the Aerospace and Defense Industries Association of Europe (ASD). We took an active role in drawing up the European standard, Phased Declaration Substances which recommends methods for tracing the most critical substances.
