...on the REACH regulations


Introduction to REACH and ROHS

HEW-KABEL manufactures, imports and supplies products which qualify as “articles”, as defined in the REACH regulations, and which therefore do not require registration with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki.

In addition, HEW-KABEL will not be required to submit a registration for the chemical substances contained in the “articles” as no substances are intended to be released under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use.

In order to meet our obligations under Article 33 of the Regulations we will advise of any products which contain substances subsequently included on published candidate lists. In addition, we will provide all required information.

In recognition of our duties within the supply chain, and to ensure full compliance with this legislation, all HEW-KABEL facilities in Europe are working with their suppliers to ensure the proper pre-registration and registration of all base chemical substances, as appropriate.

We will continue our efforts in this area to ensure that there is no disruption within the supply chain and that all products manufactured and supplied by HEW-KABEL will be fully compliant with the regulations.

Furthermore, to inform our customers of the automotive industry, we publish material data sheets at International Material Data System (IMDS) to ensure that the forbidden substances registered in the Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (GADSL) are not contained in our products.
