REACH and WEEE Compliances

REACH Compliance Overview

The following is an excerpt from the European Commission's site:

REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007.

The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.

REACH Compliance Statement

Please note: Effective Jan. 3, 2013, there is new Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) legislation that repeals all previous directives and amendments related to RoHS. The new directive, 2011/65/EU, commonly called RoHS2, incorporates all the same restrictions and exemptions of previous RoHS legislation but includes new requirements for technical documentation and to provide a declaration of conformance in accordance with CE marking requirements. For additional information on RoHS, please visit our CE Certification and RoHS page.
