REACH Directive – 1907/2006
This Declaration of Conformity based on the European Union regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals no. 1907/2006) confirms that based on all available information up to this date from Electronic Fasteners suppliers, that all duties under Article 33 have been met.
Our understanding is that Article 7(1) requires producers and importers to register with ECHA the chemical substances released from any of our products during use. In addition, Article 7 (2) requires that we notify ECHA of any Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) if the concentration is above 0.1% by weight and the total amount put on the market in the European Union is over 1 ton a year.
It is Electronic Fasteners duty to pass on this information to our customers regarding the presence of an SVHC in a concentration above the threshold.
It is also our responsibility to respond to requests within a 45 day window with the appropriate documentation for material disclosures.
