Patton Electronics Company’s REACH statement (3/29/2011)
Patton Electronics Company monitors, and requires its suppliers to monitor, the implementation of the EU REGULATION (EC) no.1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the Council of 18 December 2006, and as updated on 12/15/2010 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and responds to any affects that these regulations may have on Patton’s supply of products. Patton does not import, manufacture or otherwise supply chemicals.
Patton’s products are "articles" within the meaning of REACH. However, Patton’s products do not contain any Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) in excess of 0.1% by weight within the definition of the list of SVHCs published by the European Chemical Agency (ECHA). Similarly, Patton’s shipment packaging, also considered "articles" under REACH, do not contain SVHCs based upon the 100% material content declarations we obtain from our suppliers.
Furthermore, Patton requires its chemical suppliers, with whom it relies for certain operations, to pre-register or register the chemicals in accordance with REACH.
