Hi all

Nice to come back to cove....

i have a question please

i have an argue with colleague relating to REACH requirements. as industrial company, we use chimicals substances. My point of view was that REach is applicable to us since we are member of multinational company, but he argue that we are out of scope of REACH and therefore it isn't applicable to us

i've search in the internet and it is says that it is applicble to companies which manifacture, import, sell on market, and use these substances.for me, we are concern

what is your opinion please? and also is it possible to provide the list of the substances prohibited by REACH

thank you in advance

Hi Selena,
how are you?
Clearly Reach applies to all companies, for instance if you do PPAP with your customer, you will be requested to use only approved substances and not banned in your product.
This is called "black list".
If you do a research on the web , you will see the Reach Annex XVII where there have been reported all the info you are searching for.
It is reported the restricted substance , where shall not be used in , condition and repealing directive.

You can also refer to the link of the Agency:
http://echa.europa.eu/reach_en.asp

hope this helps:bigwave:

REACH is applicable to all who use the substances. However as you purchase them, all compliance to REACH should be taken care of by your supplier, or even further down the supply chain.

What your responsibility is, is to ensure that you do not use the blacklisted items and that your supplier has met all the requirements of REACH and also that they ensure there suppliers meet the requirements of REACH. This can usually be done by requesting that your suppliers of the substances give you a Formal Headed statement or letter of compliance to REACH regulations.

You should retain these as records that show your supplier has met the requirements of REACH and in turn this ensures that you will meet the requirements of REACH.

Hopefully this helps.

Welcome on the forum again, Selena.
All is ok .
I would suggest to explore the Reach issue because it is a very important topic for company, together with RoHS.

1) REACh has not prohibited any substances at this time. There is a SVHC list and an Authorization list.
2) Depending on the amount of substance in your article you might have a notification or a information requirement
3) The most important is to know what substance you have and if they are on the REACh lists. Your company should be working on finding substitute for these substances. The substances on the Authorization list have a sunset date.

I have to make some small corrections.

REACh does not apply to all companies. (Medical, Nuclear, Food for example are regulated by other regulations and agencies).

REACh has not BANNED any substance at this time. That is several years in the future. Companies should be working on removing the substances that are on the REACh lists. There are different requirements for the manufacturer and/or importer depending on the % of substance and annual volume.

The world is more complex that just REACh. Rohs, ELV, CGI, China REACh, Indian ELV and many more.
