REACH Any producers or importers of articles placed on the market1 in the EU must declare the presence of any Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) in an article in a concentration exceeding 0.1% w/w. 1. Test Reports are not a required component of the declaration • Upstream suppliers can provide their declarations for components of your product • Due diligence a requirement • Engineering Assessment • Testing as a last resort and as a quality control measure Article 33 – Source of compliance requirement: Duty to communicate information on substances in articles: C u s t o m s o l u t i o n s f o r c o m p l i a n c E [ REAC H | R o H S | CP s i a | RSL | p r o p 6 5 ]
  5. 5. AS SENTCOM PLIANCEinfo@assenTcompliance.com w w w. a s s e n T c o m p l i a n c e . c o m Tel: 613.290.80441. Any supplier of an article containing a substance meeting the criteria in Article 57 and identified in accordance with Article 59(1) in a concentration above 0,1 % weight by weight (w/w) shall pro- vide the recipient of the article with sufficient information, available to the supplier, to allow safe use of the article including, as a minimum, the name of that substance.2. On request by a consumer any supplier of an article containing a substance meeting the criteria in Article 57 and identified in accordance with Article 59(1) in a concentration above 0,1 % weight by weight (w/w) shall provide the consumer with sufficient information, available to the supplier, to allow safe use of the article including, as a minimum, the name of that substance. The relevant information shall be provided, free of charge, within 45 days of receipt of the request.What does this mean?• Once a substance has been added to the SVHC List, you must declare its presence and the ap- propriate safe handling instructions to your downstream users if the concentration is above 0.1% of your products weight.• This is to be done upon immediately for professional customers and within 45 days from request for consumers.1 Article 3.12 of the REACH Regulation specifies:Placing on the market: means supplying or making available, whether in return for payment or free of charge, to a thirdparty. Import shall be deemed to be placing on the market;C u s t o m s o l u t i o n s f o r c o m p l i a n c E [ REAC H | R o H S | CP s i a | RSL | p r o p 6 5 ]

RoHS The RoHS regulation is actually quite a bit more specific than REACH in terms of the declaratory requirements. The original RoHS declaration (seen on the next slide) is not especially complex however RoHS II, the RoHS recast, is part of the CE Marking Directive which means there are 2 major components making it significantly more intensive: 1. EU Declaration of Conformity a. General Requirements: i. No… (unique identification of the EEE) ii. Name and address of the manufacturer or his authorised representative: iii. This declaration of conformity is issued under the sole responsibility of the manufac- turer (or installer) iv. Object of the declaration (identification of EEE allowing traceability. It may include a photograph, where appropriate): v. The object of the declaration described above is in conformity with Directive 2011/65/ EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (recast) vi. Where applicable, references to the relevant harmonised standards used or references to the technical specifications in relation to which conformity is declared C u s t o m s o l u t i o n s f o r c o m p l i a n c E [ REAC H | R o H S | CP s i a | RSL | p r o p 6 5 ]

RoHS – Example 3 June 2011 Declaration of RoHS Compliance Wurth Electronics Midcom Inc. declares that our products are in compliance with Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment, including all applicable amendments. The hazardous substances are: Mercury (Hg _1000ppm), lead (Pb _1000ppm), cadmium (Cd _100ppm), hexavalent chromium (Cr6 _1000ppm), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB _1000ppm), polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE _1000ppm), decabromodiphenyl ether (DecaBDE _1000ppm), octabromodiphenyl ether (OctaBDE _1000ppm), pentabromodiphenyl ether (PentaBDE_1000ppm). These substances are not intentionally added but may be present as impurities and do not exceed the maximum allowed value. However, some products may contain lead (Pb) as deemed permissible under the RoHS exemptions, namely: CE Mark Technical File Information. • Lead in high melting temperature type solders (i.e. lead-based alloys containing 85% by weight or more lead). • Lead in solders for servers, storage and storage array systems, network infrastructure equipment for switching, signaling, transmission as well as network management for telecommunications. • Lead in electronic ceramic parts (e.g. piezoelectronic devices). Product specification sheets that show the status of lead-free/RoHS compliance are available on our website at www.we-online.com/midcom.

Custom Requirements Extended Producer Responsibilities (EPRs) can be more easily identified as Custom Requirements. These usually include regulations like REACH and RoHS but have additional requirements which can include: a. Radioactive substances b. Asbestos, Refractory Fibers (some covered by REACH) and Ceramics c. JIG d. Proposition 65 e. Some may even ask for a full material declaration as their requirement or have you en- roll in a program like i. Sony Green ii.

Electronic Reporting on the rise TSCA: The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a draft proposed rule under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) that will ask manufacturers of chemicals and allied products to electronically report certain information including: • TSCA section 4 – study plans and other documents relating to test rules and enforceable consent agreements (ECAs) • TSCA section 5 – notices of commencement or import (NOCs) correspondence and other data • TSCA section 8a – preliminary assessment information manufacturer’s report form • TSCA section 8d – health and safety studies full study reports and related documents Under the proposed rule, organisations would submit this data to the US EPA through the agency’s Central Data Exchange (CDX). They would use a new web-based reporting tool, the Chemical Information Submission System (CISS), that will be made available when the proposed rule be- comes final. The CISS will allow information to be converted into PDF format for review before it is submitted to the US EPA. CISS will also permit reports and other data to be submitted as PDF attachments or in other electronic formats such as extensible markup language (XML).

REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. It deals with the Registrations, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council). The new law became effective June 1, 2007. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. This directive is similar to EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations in the United States in that the manufacturers of chemicals are required to register what they manufacture, how much they manufacture or import, and any ill affects the chemical could cause to humans or the environment. Based on our research, Interpower products are not affected by this regulation. Interpower does not manufacture chemical substances or mixtures of chemical substances in containers. Our products do not contain substances which are intentionally released during their use. To our knowledge, our EU approved products do not contain any of the substances which are on the “substance of very high concern” http://echa.europa.eu/chem_data/authorisation_process/candidate_list_table_en.asp?sortby=Date_inclusi on&order=descending and in accordance with Annex XIV of EC 1907/2006. If any Substance of Very High Concern is identified in our products for use in the EU, Interpower Corporation will take all necessary actions to make the required notification to our customers. If you would like to research this directive further, please visit the website: www.echa.europa.eu for more information. If you have questions pertaining to any of our products, please email your request to Interpower Customer REACH Letter-1 jcaligiuri@interpower.com. • Company Header • Appropriate individual Joe Caligiuri Product Compliance Specialist • Includes some information on REACH Interpower Corporation www.interpower.com • Gives the actual link to the Candidate List • Date is not currentC u s t o m s o l u t i o n s f o r c o m p l i a n c E [ REAC H | R o H S | CP s i a | RSL | p r o p 6 5 ]

Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. (REACH) ​ The subject directive undertakes the identification and definition of chemicals of concern, and preparation of said chemicals, that are contained in products for use in the European Union. It details registration obligations of manufactures and suppliers to assure compliance. The shape, surface and design of our products (articles) are paramount to the chemical composition. LYN-TRON products are deemed articles, as defined in the REACH Directive. Articles are exempt from REACH unless they release a SVHC (Substance of Very High Concern) as identified in the regulation. Lyn-Tron, Inc. does not manufacture or distribute any products that contain these substances. No chemicals or substances are intentionally released from Lyn-Tron’s products. Lyn-tron, Inc. products are Halogen free. For these reasons, Lyn-Tron products are considered articles that are not affected by the REACH Directive. They do not require registration. -- Paragraph 32 and Chapter 2 (3.3) Sincerely, Michael E.
