Reaching REACH Compliance

RoHS Compliance is one of the hottest topics in the wire and cable industry today.  But did you know that the European Union (EU) has recently introduced a new initiative called REACH?

REACH, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals, will affect manufacturers who do business in or with European markets.  This directive could lead to the banning of as many as 3,000 chemicals from manufacturing.  As of October, 15 substances have already been restricted.

REACH puts the responsibility of product safety on individual manufacturers. To read more about REACH, find out which substances have been officially restricted, and find out the steps you should take to comply, click here.
