REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of CHemicals)

The European Regulation 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006)

 

• Samsung Electronics' Device Solutions Division complies with EU REACH regulations. As semiconductor products are subjected to the REACH Article, it fulfills the Duty to communicate information on substances in articles as follows:

 

Obligations according to Article 33

The aim of Article 33 is to ensure that sufficient information is communicated down the supply chain to allow the safe use of articles.

• A supplier of articles containing a SVHC included on the Candidate List for authorization in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) has to provide relevant safety information about this substance available to him to the recipients of these articles (Article 33(1)).

• If no particular information is necessary to allow safe use of the article containing a substance from the Candidate List, as a minimum the name of the substance in question has to be communicated to the recipients.

• The information is to be provided to the recipients automatically, i.e. as soon as the substance has been included on the Candidate List for authorization. Note that the term “recipients” refers to industrial or professional users and distributors, but not to consumers.

• Upon request of a consumer, the same supplier of articles has to provide relevant safety information about the SVHC available to him also to this consumer (Article 33(2)). The consumer has to be provided with this information within 45 calendar days of the request and free of charge.
