REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006

REACH stands for "Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals" and took effect on June 1, 2007 with regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006. REACH is a regulation of the European Union adopted for the purpose of better protecting human health and the environment from the risks that can arise from chemicals.

FAULHABER is not a manufacturer or importer of chemical materials or preparations that require registration. Within the spirit of the regulation, it is instead a downstream user. As a downstream user, we conduct the necessary communication in the supply chain. Because chemicals legislation also covers substances in products, we have an obligation to inform if substances of very high concern (SVHC) are part of FAULHABER products.

On September 10, 2015, the European Court of Justice specified the definition of a product within the scope of the REACH regulation. If the limit value of 0.1% weight by weight of a substance of very high concern (SVHC) is exceeded in an installed subassembly, there is an obligation – independent of the % weight by weight portion in the whole product – to inform according to Article 33 (1) of the REACH regulation.

If you are concerned about a specific part number, or for any additional information is required, please contact the MICROMO team by submitting the contact form.

Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and the Council on restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic devices (the so-called RoHS directive) regulates certain conditions for bringing electrical and electronic devices into circulation.

The RoHS directive restricts the use of certain hazardous materials in electrical and electronic devices, including substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chrome as well as some brominated flame retardants and plasticisers. The listed substances may only be used in electrical and electronic devices up to a designated maximum concentration value, unless exceptions are permitted in accordance with the annexes to the directive. Due to the associated removal of pollutants, the recycling of used electrical and electronic devices should be improved and the harmful effects on people and the environment reduced.

The consolidated version of the RoHS directive was implemented in national law in Germany with the Elektro- und Elektronikgeräte-Stoff-Verordnung [Electrical and electronic device substance ordinance] (ElektroStoffV).
