REACH: Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals

PCB REACH compliant

REACH (1907/2006/EG) is an EU regulation which entered into force on 1st June 2007 and is addressing the production and use of chemical substances on the basis of an SVHC candidate list (SVHC = Substances of Very High Concern).

Based on the information currently available to us from our material suppliers, we can assure that none of the substances listed in the REACH Annexes, Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) at a concentration above 0.1% by mass, REACH Annex XIV (Authorization) and Annex XVII (Restrictions) according to the current state of issue are contained in the printed circuit boards and other products placed on the market by Multi Circuit Boards Ltd.

Multi-CB - SVHC Declaration of Compliance

Exception: If you have explicitly ordered the printed circuit board surface HAL SnPB, one of the substances currently listed in REACH-Annex XIV (lead, CAS 7439-92-1) is contained in the printed circuit boards delivered to you with a content of more than 0.1%. All other available PCB surfaces are REACH compliant.

Multi Circuit Boards Ltd. is among the „downstream users” according to REACH. You procure exclusively non-chemical articles from us which are not intended to release any substance under normal and reasonably foreseeable conditions of use. Therefore, Multi Circuit Boards Ltd. is not subject to obligational registration nor is it bound to the creation of safety data sheets.

Multi-CB pays particular attention to long-term security of supply and continuity. We are in constant contact with our suppliers regarding the substances used. Each time the SVHC candidate list is revised, the substances used are rechecked. We will inform our customers immediately in accordance with REACH Art. 33, if ingredients of our products (with a content of> 0.1% by mass) are classified as of very high concern by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). However, we do not expect this to happen.

In addition, we also refrain from using decabromodiphenyl ether (DecaBDE),  perfluorooctane sulfonates (PFOS) and persistent organic pollutants (POP).
