As part of our ongoing compliance commitment, Apollo Fire Detectors has undertaken a process to identify which, if any, substances of very high concern (SVHCs), meeting the criteria set out in Article 57 of REACH and included on the REACH “Candidate List”, are contained within the product we supply to you and in what concentrations. We are also monitoring the ongoing amendments to Annex XVII of REACH, which has introduced restrictions for specific applications.
As part of this SVHC identification process we have:
- Reviewed internal/publicly available engineering data in relation to the presence of SVHCs in our products or any of their component parts;
- Reviewed available safety data sheets for all our input materials;
- Communicated with our suppliers to exclude/confirm the presence of SVHCs in any component parts of our products.
As a result of this process, we have received no notification of any breach to the regulation and we confirm that, to the best of our knowledge, the product we currently supply does not contain any SVHCs included on the Candidate List in concentrations above 0.1 % (w/w), and are compliant with Annex XVII restrictions.
This communication refers to the latest version of the ECHA Candidate List at the time the product was shipped.
We will continue to monitor new additions to SVHC and Annex XVII and will update our compliance statement as appropriate.
