Health, Safety & the Environment

At Janex, we pride ourselves on our long-term record of compliance in health, safety and environmental protection. Distributing chemicals is a responsibility that we take very seriously. Every company involved in our supply chain, from production through to delivery, is validated against our in-house standards of care and protection.


REACH = Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals

REACH applies to the manufacture and import of chemicals into the European Union and requires that manufacturers, importers and customers are aware of the health and safety requirements of the products being imported.

Janex is a registered REACH importer. We have a number of products registered and we have in-house expertise to help customers ensure they are compliant in their activities.


We comply with international regulations. In particular, Globally Harmonized System (GHS) in various countries including the US, and Classification Labelling and Packaging (CLP) in the EU, set the standard for Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and labelling requirements. Janex has engaged the services of its technical partner SGS drawing upon their expertise in Safety Data Sheet authoring and document management. Together with SGS we can produce compliant SDSs for all our products in multiple languages. SGS also manages our 24/7 Emergency Telephone Response Assistance (CEFIC level 1).


The majority of the products we work with are produced by plants that are certified to ISO9000, ISO14000 standards and higher norms. We secure all necessary evidence of certification prior to product shipment and we also work with customers to arrange site visits and audits where required.

All of our distribution and storage partners have been vetted and approved to the highest standards.
