Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulates the use of chemical substances in the EU. The regulation is applicable in all EU member states, including the EEA/EFTA states. REACH impacts the manufacturing sector and the import of products into Europe. It came into effect on June 1, 2007.

REACH Registration Obligations

REACH requires manufacturers and importers to register chemical substances, preparations, and articles under the intentional release condition involving the intentional release of substances in quantities of over one tonne per year into the EEA countries. Pre-registration was between June and December 2008. The registration phase will be completed by May 31, 2018, for quantities of 1 to 100 tonnes per year.

To the best of our knowledge, Moxa does not manufacture and import any products or accessories listed under the intentional release condition in quantities of over one tonne per year.

Moxa Obligations

Moxa is obligated to share sufficient information with our customers on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) contained in our products if their concentration is above 0.1% (w/w). Moxa regularly updates this information to ensure our commitment to REACH, including the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern for authorization and substances restricted under REACH (Annex XVII), according to the official information on ECHA processes and developments that is available on the European Chemicals Agency's (ECHA) website.

This declaration will be updated as soon as any changes occur or any new substances are added to the Candidate List. When a substance is identified as a Substance of Very High Concern (SHVC), it is added to the Candidate List, which is the first step of the authorization process.
