REACH – Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals

REACH Compliance

EJOT, as defined by REACH, is a downstream user and therefore is not responsible for documenting substances.
We attach great importance to quality and safety; as a consequence, every product is subject to regular strict controls. These also apply, of course, to compliance with legal limit values for harmful substances.
EJOT will meet or comply with the commitments of the REACH directive and has also accordingly contractually obliged every supplier to comply with the applicable requirements as well. Among other things, our suppliers are obligated to comply with substance prohibitions and duties of declaration.
We are not subjected to obligations based on the substance and formulation documentation. According to REACH directive Article 33, however, we are obligated to provide information about products.
When required, we will inform you about relevant changes in your products brought about through REACH, their availability and the quality of the parts that we deliver to you as part of our business relationship, in individual cases we will determine suitable measures together with you.

REACH description:

REACH stands for "Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals" and took effect on 1 June, 2007.

REACH Declaration – additional information

According to Article 33 of the REACH directive, every supplier of a product must indicate when the product contains more than 0.1% (mass per cent) of substances of very high concern( SVHC). In the case of composite products it is necessary to take the concentration threshold of the individual product into account (e.g. bicycle handle, belt buckle, etc.). Therefore, the following needs to be done:

  • Check the Candidate List regularly
    • Ensure regular updates of the Candidate List: The Candidate List is updated twice annually (at the start and in the middle of the year) 
    • Is there a possibility that candidate substances are contained in the products?
  • Duty to supply information about substances that are contained in my product in a concentration in excess of 0.1% and are on the Candidate List: communicating the information available which is sufficient for safe use, indicating at the minimum the name of the substance in question.
    • Unsolicited forwarding of the information along the supply chain in the case of trade customers
    • Information to private end users only on request (45 days)
