REACH is a European regulation on chemicals and their safe use that entered into force in all EU member states on June 1st, 2007. By creating a comprehensive management of chemicals, REACH deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemical substances and aims to ensure high safety standards for environmental and health risks.
The duty of registration and evaluation applies to all companies which manufacture or import chemicals in the European Union in quantities of one ton or more per year. It also applies to manufacturers of non-chemical commodities when the manufacturer’s products have a total release of chemicals – under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions – of one ton or more per year. Particularly worrying substances will require special authorization.
ADL Embedded Solutions, Inc. is a manufacturer of embedded computing products. Within the meaning of the REACH regulation, ADL Embedded Solutions, Inc. products are non-chemical in nature and are not subject to registration, evaluation or authorization since, to the best of our knowledge, no chemical substances are released under normal and reasonably foreseeable conditions of use, or their total content does not exceed one ton per year.
