SMP Technology Inc. REACH Product Compliance Program
What is REACH Compliance?
Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 is commonly referred to as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals). The REACH regulation became effective on June 1, 2007 to streamline and improve the former legislative framework for chemicals available in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries.
The objective of REACH is to improve protection of human health and the protection of the environment from the exposure to chemicals. REACH compliance is mandatory for products manufactured in, or imported into the European Union (EU).
As outlined by the REACH regulation, any organization manufacturing, importing, using or placing a substance, mixture, article or product on the EU market will be responsible for ensuring that the component substances are in compliance with REACH regulations.
Determining REACH Compliance of SMP Technology Inc. Products:
SMP Technology does not currently either manufacture or import any chemical substances into the EU on their own or in articles (products) in quantities of 1 ton or more per year. In addition, SMP Technology Inc. products do not contain chemical substances intended to be released during the normal and reasonably foreseeable conditions of the product’s use as defined by the REACH regulation and existing guidance.
However, under REACH, there is an obligation to ensure that articles do not contain any of the substances on the REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) Candidate list in concentration greater than 0.1% by weight. SVHCs are substances that may cause cancer or other serious health or environmental effects and thus face restriction or outright bans, and are listed in a regularly-updated ‘Candidate list’. The current Candidate list can be downloaded from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) website: http://echa.europa.eu/chem_data/authorisation_process/candidate_list_table_en.asp
The substances present in SMP Technology Inc.’s products are not above a concentration level of 0.1% weight by weight (w/w). Additionally, our products do not contain substances of very high concern. For each part that has been found to comply with the REACH SVHC reporting requirements, we offer REACH complaint certificates.
The above information is to the best of our knowledge accurate.
SMP Technology Inc - REACH Product Compliance Program:
At SMP Technology Inc, we recognize our responsibility as a worldwide supplier of interconnect products subject to the REACH regulations. We have completed a comprehensive effort internally and with our supply chain to determine the REACH compliance of our products.
The SMP Technology Inc. REACH Product Compliance Program is implemented in accordance with Regulation No. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the Council of 18 December 2006. SMP Technology Inc does not currently have a direct REACH obligation to pre-register substances. SMP Technology Inc.’s Product Compliance is determined by a certification from our supply chain. A SMP Technology Inc product is deemed to be REACH compliant when it does not contain Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) beyond the specified concentration limits of less than 0.1% by weight as outlined in REACH 1907/2006/EU regulation. SMP Technology Inc. will continually monitor our supply chain for adherence to the REACH directives
