Ensuring safety with considerations on chemical hazards
Innovation, technical features, product safety, and compliance… All assets that allow Markem-Imaje to come up with a range of high-quality consumables.
By striving to uphold the highest standards of health and safety at Markem-Imaje we go beyond legal and regulatory requirements and acquire knowledge about the chemical composition of the raw materials we use to guarantee maximum safety for operators and consumers. We are managing products for compliance with regulations and standards through rigorous supplier quality management from product conception through the end of manufacturing. Using qualified raw materials Markem-Imaje consumables meet legislative and standards of safe and compliant printing inks applicable to various areas like food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics packaging; electrical and electronic equipment, automotive, and others.

Continuous chemical assessment and management:
An active monitoring system means that formulas are constantly re-evaluated and requalified to ensure they remain in line with the applicable legislation. Effective change management and communication are continuously performed so that any evolutions (regulatory, chemical exposure, perception) are identified, communicated, and managed without disruption to our customers.
We engineer our marking and coding electrical equipment for safe operation, including fire protection, electrical safety, thermal, mechanical, chemical, and radiation protection. We achieve and maintain compliance with standards and regulations most widely recognized in the world: IECEE CB Safety scheme, CE European directives, Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), USA-Canada safety mark, Federal Communication Commission regulations, REACH, ROHS regulations.
Electromagnetic compatibility is an integral part of the Markem-Imaje electronic and electrical products design project. We guarantee that our electronic or electrical devices don't emit a large amount of electromagnetic interference (known as radiated and conducted emissions) and that they continue to function as intended in the presence of several electromagnetic phenomena.
