We have analysed the REACH issue at ADS-TEC for relevance to us, our customers and suppliers and would like to inform you of the following:
According to the REACH terminology, ADS-TEC is a manufacturer of products, and to a lesser extent, a downstream user. For this reason, we may be required to comply with stipulations from Article 7 and Article 33 of REACH. The obligation to notify the ECHA (European Chemical Agency) in accordance with Article 7 of REACH is only effective if the material in question is put into circulation by us in amounts of more than one ton a year as a product component and this material in the so-called candidate list (SVHC) makes up more than 0.1% weight by mass of the product. Furthermore, registration is only compulsory if the material in question is released under normal or reasonable conditions of use. We would like to call to your attention that none of the products supplied by ADS-TEC release chemical substances or preparations when used in accordance with their intended function. For this reason, we are in no way required to perform a direct registration of substances with the ECHA.
In accordance with Article 33 of REACH, the product suppliers are required to provide consumers with sufficient information for the safe use of their products. With the help of information from suppliers and additional analyses, ADS-TEC checks whether and in what amounts substances in the candidate list may be present. We publish the results on this website, thereby fulfilling our reporting requirement in accordance with Article 33 of REACH.
According to our current state of knowledge and in light of the information from our suppliers, our products can contain the following SVHC substances in a concentration of less than 0.1% weight by mass:
|SVHC substance||CAS number||Remarks|
|Cables and other PVC-based compo-nents in/of electronic devices.||DEHP, to (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate||117-81-7||PVC cables and parts can contain this substance. These PVC parts can be either separate pieces or connected to our devices.|
