Spraying Systems Co. REACH

About This Policy

The Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulates the manufacture, placing on the market and use of chemical substances and mixtures.

Spraying Systems Co. also supplies, among other things, nozzles, nozzle components and parts made of copper alloys.

In the sense of the REACH regulation these are seen as products. According to Article 33 of the REACH Regulation, suppliers of products must inform their customers if the supplied product contains a substance on the REACH Candidate List (SVHC list) in levels greater than 0.1% by mass. On 27.06.2018, lead (CAS:7439-92-1 / EINECS: 231-100-4) was added to the SVHC candidate list. This inclusion triggers a related information obligation in the supply chain.

We hereby inform you that our products made of copper alloys contain lead in concentrations greater than 0.1% by mass.

The hazardous material classification, the rules for the safe handling of lead metal and the range of applications for our products remain unchanged.

Copper and copper alloy products do not fall within the scope of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation) and are therefore not subject to classification and labeling requirements.
