Tenneco has a dedicated team responsible for our compliance with Europe's REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) legislation, which requires companies to register the chemicals employed in manufacturing with the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) and ensure their safe use.

We are committed to providing timely and relevant information about certain aspects of REACH to our customers and suppliers with the goal of ensuring that Tenneco's REACH compliance is as seamless as possible to our customer base.
