To Our Customer,
In June 2007 the EU (European Union) enacted chemical registration requirements known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemical Substances). The goal of REACH is to identify substances that are manufactured or imported into the EU.
Articles 57 & 59 of REACH, the SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) Candidate list (
http://echa.europa.eu/web/guest/candidate-list-table) pertains to articles and therefore Freelin-Wade products. EU customers importing articles containing more than .1% by weight of any substance on this SVHC list may need to comply with special reporting requirements.
As of the date of this letter, to the best of our knowledge, all of the tube and hose products found in Freelin-Wade’s catalogs (exclusive of Asepsi-Flex, reinforced PVC hose, and all fittings/accessories) do not contain any substances on the SVHC Candidate list. Please be advised that Freelin-Wade does not analyze for these substances.
Freelin-Wade Company intends to monitor the developments of REACH and cooperate with requests for information from our customers regarding REACH compliance.
If you have any questions regarding REACH compliance and how it pertains to Freelin-Wade products please contact us at 503-434-5561.
