REACH / RoHS and Conflict Minerals
REACH stands for "Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals". REACH is an EU regulation that applies to all chemical substances, from industrial to everyday chemicals. It was enacted to improve chemical safety related to both the environment and health.
We receive the related notifications and reports from our suppliers and can provide evidence of this documentation to our customers.
RoHS stands for “Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances” in electrical and electronic equipment. The dangerous substances are lead, mercury, chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ether and cadmium. The guideline serves to protect human health and supports the environmentally sound recycling and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.
Here too we receive all necessary reports and documents directly from our suppliers to ensure your safety.
Conflict minerals are mineral resources, raw materials and other natural resources cultivated or promoted in conflict or high-risk areas such in parts of Africa, America or Asia. The manufacture or breakdown of these substances takes place illegally and without state control, often by rebels, militias or other armed groups. Conflict minerals include gold, tantalum, tungsten and tin.
