Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals

Lyncolec is a downstream user of substances. We do not manufacture or import substances or knowingly use them for any purpose other than that which the manufacturer intended.

No product supplied by Lyncolec is known by us to fall within the REACH definition of an article intended to emit or discharge a substance. We do not, therefore, intend to undertake any direct pre-registration or ongoing registration activity. To ensure that business continuity of Lyncolec and it’s customers is maintained, Lyncolec undertake to;

  1. Maintain a database of materials used in manufacturing processes.

  2. Write to all appropriate suppliers requiring confirmation that necessary pre-registration activity is being undertaken or that this requirement is being further cascaded to their suppliers.

  3. Compile a register of any materials for which pre-registration or discontinuation of supply of a component substance is stated by the manufacturer/importer.

  4. Notify affected customers of the potential impact and implication of any substance discontinuation notified by our suppliers. This will be completed as soon as reasonably practicable after our initial impact assessment.

  5. Monitor and review the REACH candidate lists of substances of very high concern issued by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to identify whether any listed substances are present in articles supplied by Lyncolec at a level exceeding 0.1% (w/w). An appropriate action plan will be established if any substance is identified as exceeding this maximum permissible level.

Note : Where a customer drawing specifies the use of non-compliant materials on the basis of end-use waivers obtained from regulatory authorities, the responsibility for ensuring ongoing validity of the waiver rests with the design authority. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact a Lyncolec representative.
