REACH is the new Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals in EU Member states as well as the EFTA European Economic Area (EEA) countries Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. REACH makes industry responsible for assessing and managing the risks posed by chemicals and providing appropriate safety information to their users. Requirements are phased and will occur over several years, commencing in 2008.
EDCOR Electronics Corporation Declaration Regarding the REACH "Duty to Communicate Information on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs)"
EDCOR product and product packaging, based on EDCOR’s knowledge, do not contain chemical substances to be included on the initial candidate list in a concentration above 0.1% w/w. However, EDCOR is currently gathering information from suppliers related to the percentage of materials by weight in the components that we use. We expect to have this completed in time to ensure all applicable obligations are met within the specified time frames.
EDCOR Electronics Corporation’s preregistration obligations before 1 December 2008
EDCOR 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. It is therefore understood that EDCOR does not have a direct obligation to preregister and register substances contained in products.
EDCOR is strongly committed to working with our customers and supply chain to define and implement the REACH requirements and ensure a smooth transition to compliance.
