On June 1, 2007, The European Parliament and the Council of 18 December 2006 regulation (EC) # 1907/2006, called REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) became effective. The goal of REACH is to provide protection of human health and the environment from the exposure to certain chemicals available in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area countries (EEA).
REACH compliance is mandatory for all products manufactured in, or imported into the European Union (EU). Any organization manufacturing, importing, using or placing a substance, mixture, article or product on the EU market is responsible to insure that the component substances are in compliance with REACH regulations.
P1dB does not currently either manufacture or import any chemical substances into the EU on its own, or in products in quantities of 1 ton or more per year. P1dB products do not contain chemical substances intended to be released during the normal or foreseeable conditions of the products use as defined by the REACH regulation. P1dB products do not contain any of the substances listed on the “candidate list” (effective 20 June 2013) of REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC’s) in concentration greater than 0.1% by weight.
Each P1dB part that has been found to comply with the REACH SVHC reporting requirement is indicated on the part number’s individual data sheet.
P1dB maintains a comprehensive effort both internally and with it’s supply chain to access the REACH compliance of our products. P1dB does not currently have a direct REACH obligation to pre-register substances.
If you have questions concerning REACH product certification of P1dB parts, please contact the P1dB REACH compliance officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
