Pre-registration
To meet the REACH regulation requirements, Shell Lubricants have pre-registered all the substances it manufactures.

The REACH regulation does not require the pre-registration of preparations. However, all component substances must be pre-registered. As such, we are working closely with our suppliers around the pre-registration of substances (or equivalent suitable alternatives) supplied to us.
