REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)

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 continue to work to identify which, if any, of those substances (commonly known as Substances of Very High concern [SHVC] 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.

To date, from all the 174 SVHC's listed as of 07 July 2017, we have identified that some of the articles that we supply to you contain 4-nonyl phenol (branched), which is classified as an SHVC. This chemical is included on the candidate list in a concentration above 0.1% (inclusion Date 20/06/2013) according to article 59 (1, 10) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH). Please see the website of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for more information.

Our traditional lead-based, electrochemical oxygen sensors do not contain SHVC's when new. However, the following SVHC's may be generated during the life cycle of the sensor.

Lead (II) oxide (CAS number: 1317-36-8)
Acetic acid, lead salt, basic (CAS number: 51404-69-4)
Lead tetroxide (orange lead) (CAS number: 1314-41-6)
Lead (II) acetate. (CAS number: 301-04-2)

At the current time, to the best of City Technology's knowledge, all sensors not included in these lists do not contain SHVCs and will not generate SVHC during the normal use of the product.
