Precision Micro only work with suppliers who have pre-registered their chemicals under REACH.
Addition, 20th June 2016 Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
Precision Micro tracks the portfolio of materials and finishes that potentially contain SVHCs. Based on current and available information of the products supplied by Precision Micro they contain less than 0.1% w/w of Substances of Very High Concern as listed on the Candidate List published by the ECHA in December 2015.
If, at some future date, a substance used in our products is added to the SVHC list we will inform customers in writing the name of the substance and the concentration level (w/w). A Material Safety Data Sheet for the safe use (including disposal) will also be sent.
Cadmium and cadmium oxide were added to the list of Substances of Very High Concern as listed on the Candidate List published by the ECHA on 20 June 2013. Some customers in the aerospace industry may require a cadmium plated finish. While our manufactured products do not contain cadmium we can subcontract this plating finish for customers if required.
ANNEX XVII TO REACH – conditions of restriction
The restrictions on cadmium plating shall not apply to: articles and components of the articles used in the aeronautical, aerospace, mining, offshore and nuclear sectors whose applications require high safety standards and in safety devices in road and agricultural vehicles, rolling stock and vessels,
Electrical contacts in any sector of use, where that is necessary to ensure the reliability required of the apparatus on which they are installed.
