Hi there,:bigwave:

We design and manufacture research product outside of the EU but have many customers in the EU. Since it's not a medical device we do self certification for CE Marking.
We have verified that the substances we use are RoHS and REACH compliant and would like to know how this is documented to serve as proof if we ever get asked by a NB, or whoever it is that might ask.
Everything I can find online refers to the Downstream user as inside the EU, was wondering what it means for us not in the EU.

Is it simply saving the MSDS or should it reflect in our BOMs?
Would be interested in knowing what is suggested as best practice or industry standard.

Thank you in advance.
