REACH SVHC: Products Supplied with Lithium Cells

City Technology, as part of the Honeywell group, supports the general objectives of the Regulation No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (commonly known as REACH), which seeks to improve human and environmental protection.

Under this Regulation, the products we sell are “articles", without intended release of a chemical substance. Therefore, According to REACH Article 7, they are not subject to the pre-registration or registration process.

According to Article 33 of this Regulation, any supplier of an article containing candidate substance in a concentration above 0.1 % (weight by weight in the articles), shall provide the recipient of the article with information, available to the supplier, to allow safe use of the article including, as a minimum, the name of that substance.

Therefore, as part of our ongoing compliance commitment, we have completed a process to identify which, if any, of those substances (commonly known as Substances of Very High concern [SVHC] included on the "Candidate List" for possible inclusion in Annex XIV of the REACH Regulation), are contained within the products we supply to you and in what concentrations.

As a result of this process, we hereby confirm that the following City Technology products are supplied wth bias boards that contain Lithium cells, which contain the SVHC 1,2-dimethoxyethane (EGDME) CAS No. 110-71-4.
