Habia Cable strive to ensure continuous compliance within REACH legislation; this is our statement with regard to REACH.
Habia Cable is aware of the European regulation, 1907/2006, Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and will continuously work to ensure our compliance within this legislation.
We have identified us as a downstream user as we produce wires, cables and cable systems, which according to REACH definition are articles and have therefore no obligation to register our products. In a few cases where we import substances from suppliers outside EU we have a responsibility to ensure that registration is carried out if applicable.
Habia Cable hereby declares based on information provided by our suppliers that our products comply with the requirements of the REACH regulation. Article 33 of the regulation obliges the supplier of a product which includes a substance of the candidate list (SVHC – Substances of Very High Concern) in a concentration > 0,1% (w/w) to inform its consumers with at minimum the name of the substance. In case of receiving further information from our suppliers regarding presence of substances mentioned in the most recent candidate list it will be communicated to concerned customers.
We do understand our customers concern that their products can be delivered without interruption and will do our utmost to ensure that. We do not foresee that the REACH regulation would endanger our possibility to manufacture and deliver products to you in the future.
Brexit and REACH
To the best of our knowledge it is UK's intention to keep the European Union’s aims and principles regarding REACH within its legislation. Our interpretation is that all rules that affects our products will remain unchanged for the time being. However, we are monitoring future changes and will ensure that the necessary actions are taken to maintain our obligations and responsibilities.
