We take our product responsibility seriously. We therefore require our suppliers and customers to comply with legal requirements in order to guarantee the quality and safety of our products.
In connection with the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the European Union adopted the 12th sanctions package Council Regulation (EU) 2023/2878 of 18 December 2023 adopted. This prohibits the import of further goods from and through Russia into the EU if they are intended for export to third countries. The sanctions also include a ban on the import of steel products, timber, cement and other products that are important sources of income for Russia. In addition to the import of goods, the supply chain up to the intended use must also be checked.
