The EU REACH Regulation (ie EU Regulation "EC"/2006) is a regulation on the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals, which came into effect on June 1, 2007.
The EU REACH regulation divides products into three categories: "substances", "mixtures" and "articles", affecting almost all products placed on the EU market.
Article 67 Paragraph 1 of the EU REACH Regulation stipulates: "Substances, mixtures or articles containing restricted substances in Annex XVII shall not be placed on the market if they cannot meet the restriction requirements".
The regulation states that products placed on the EU market by manufacturers or importers shall not contain restricted substances in Annex XVII of the REACH Regulation, which is a safety net established by the EU to protect the EU's environment and citizens' health.
Enterprises must ensure that products sold in the EU do not contain relevant restricted substances. Therefore, enterprises should pay attention not only to SVHCs, but also to the existence of restricted substances listed in Annex XVII of the regulations in corresponding products.
With the process of industrialization, more and more attention has been paid to the environmental protection issues of consumer products and various daily necessities, and environmental protection regulations have become more and more stringent. When it comes to environmental protection, almost all consumer goods manufacturers or suppliers have been required to supply products. Environmental protection Statements, like RoHS report, REACH report. The REACH certification fee is divided according to the type of material of the test target, which is divided into metal raw materials and non-metallic raw materials. Metal raw materials are all inorganic products, and some substances in REACH-SVHC are only contained in organic substances.
How many metal/non-metal REACH testing items are there?
The latest version of the European REACH standard has been updated to 219 items. The REACH testing items are divided into metal testing items and non-metallic testing items according to different materials.
For metal products, REACH testing items are REACH 71;
For non-metallic materials, REACH testing items are 219 items.
Can the REACH test report directly replace the RoHS report?
First of all, it needs to be clear that the electrical and electronic products put on the EU market must meet the requirements of the RoHS directive and REACH regulations at the same time.
The RoHS Directive is an industry-specific directive that restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment; while the REACH regulations put forward requirements for registration, evaluation, authorization, and restriction of chemicals that affect almost all products, including electrical and electronic products. Second, the RoHS Directive does not affect the application of REACH regulations and vice versa.
In the event of overlapping requirements, the stricter requirements shall apply. In addition, in the regular review of the RoHS Directive, the EU Environment Committee will also analyze its consistency with REACH regulations to ensure the consistency between the RoHS Directive and REACH.
Many companies ask that customers require a RoHS report, but we have a REACH report, can we directly report the REACH report to the customer? Will the customer accept the REACH report instead of the RoHS report?
1. First of all, REACH report and RoHS report are two different items
2. Secondly, the items tested in the REACH report and the RoHS report are also different. Therefore, the REACH report cannot replace the RoHS report.
