Product information on materials in KRONES parts
The European Chemicals Directive (EC) No. 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) defines, among other things, requirements for communication in the delivery chain. It also contains information on especially alarming substances (SVHC) in products.
(SVHC = substances of very high concern)
Materials with SVHC:
- As a manufacturer and supplier of products, KRONES is especially aware of the communication requirements in accordance with REACH Article 33. We monitor the development of the list of candidates and keep information of our suppliers on the lack or presence of SVHCs in our products up to date.
- On 27 June 2018 lead metal was added to the list of candidates according to REACH Article 59 (1) based in the classification as toxic for reproduction (Repro 1A, H360DF). All parts included in this list are indicated in our KRONES.Shop with the respective note on the product detail page.
- The use of lead is currently not prohibited on the SVHC list of candidates.
