EVA foam mat REACH Testing Report

EVA foam, which stands for Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate foam, is a type of polymer foam commonly used in a wide range of applications such as sports equipment, children’s toys, and footwear.

The REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) is a European Union regulation that aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

Under REACH, EVA foam is subject to registration requirements if it is manufactured or imported in quantities of one tonne or more per year. This means that the manufacturer or importer of EVA foam must submit a registration dossier to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) containing information on the identity and properties of the substance, as well as its potential hazards and risks.

Additionally, certain substances used in the manufacture of EVA foam may be subject to authorization or restriction under REACH if they are found to be of high concern for human health or the environment. These substances may include, for example, certain plasticizers, flame retardants, or other chemicals that can be harmful.

It is important for manufacturers and importers of EVA foam to ensure compliance with the REACH Regulation, as failure to do so can result in fines, legal action, or restrictions on the use or sale of the substance in the European Union.
