To fulfill the objectives within the company Weidmüller following article 1 of REACH enactment, pioneering measurements have been taken. REACH is a learning system which can only be successful if the response to new insights or new demand response is handled flexibly and dynamically.
Weidmüller as an ecologically-minded company takes on responsibility for the communication within the supply chain and the whole information flow within the REACH enactment 1907/2006. Following REACH article 33, the duty to inform about substances in products is only applicable for so called substances of very high concern (SVHC). The European Chemicals Agency ECHA decides which substances are liable to this regulation (see REACH Art. 59). The current version of the list of candidates can be viewed on the web pages of ECHA.
Based on our supplier statements we currently have SVHC in some of our products above the respective thresholds for declaration obligation resulting from article 33. This situation however could potentially be a different for example after new SVHC are published by the ECHA. As soon as declaration obligations will apply for further Weidmüller Interface products, the effected articles and contained SVHC will be published in the online product catalogue at each product.
