REACH: Compliance and Growth in the Electronics Industry

REACH COMPLIANCE AND GROWTH IN THE ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY REACH is a regulation of the European Union to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks of chemicals and promotes alternative methods for dangerous/ harmful substances. To comply, substances must be registered and chemical data must follow regulations. All data is current as of September 2012 NOT ALL SUPPLIERS PUBLISH REACH DATA ACTIVELY 46% 54% Do Not Publish REACH/Chemical Info Publish REACH/Chemical Info 30% 24% Actively Provide REACH Info Do not Actively Provide REACH Info This respresentation is based on a sample of 851 suppliers from the SiliconExpert Database PARTS WITHOUT ACTIVELY PUBLISHED REACH INFORMATION 10% .. ............ Parts without published REACH information 69% Parts with actively published REACH information 21% Parts with some REACH information published WHY IS PUBLISHING REACH IMPORTANT REACH places the "burden of proof" on companies to comply with regulations forcing them to identify and manage substances of risk. Although this is an EU (European Union) regulation it affects multiple members of the supply chain including manufactures, suppliers, importers, and more. SVHC (SUBSTANCES OF VERY HIGH CONCERN) Under REACH a substance is a SVHC if it BOTH meets this list of hazardous categories ... Carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction (CMRS) Persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic [PBT] Very persistent and very bio-accumulative [VPVB] Equivalent level of concern, such as endocrine disruptors AND has been placed the candidate list of substances considered the REACH Commission on for authorization.

These potential SVHCS are called SIN (Substitute it Now) substances and act as a tool to help identify hazerdous chemicals that fit REACH criteria. PRODUCT CATEGORIES INCLUDING SIN SUBSTANCES Electronic product lines that are most likely affected if all substances on the SIN List are recognized by REACH.
