Compliance And Policies
RoHS directive 2011/65/EU
CGUK LTD is committed to conducting business in an environmentally friendly manner. CGUK LTD is aware of and supports the objectives of the RoHS directive.
CGUK LTD is a distributor and therefore does not manufacture any of the materials used in our parts.
Compliance has therefore been obtained directly from our suppliers.
Whilst CGUK LTD has taken reasonable steps to confirm the accuracy of information, the declaration of compliance originates from our suppliers and not ourselves. Which means that we are unable to make definitive statements regarding the process by which compliance is achieved. It is legally sufficient to make the declaration of compliance without having to supply the customer with precise details of how it is achieved for every product in our range. Similarly, a user may accept that declaration without assuming legal liability for how compliance is achieved.
With this letter CGUK LTD can confirm that the suppliers we use have confirmed that the goods they supply are compliant with the RoHS directive 2011/65/EU.
CGUK LTD cannot provide detailed lists of data and processes used by our suppliers to achieve compliance. Neither can we reformat the information we have on file to cater for the customer’s internal administration requirements; this includes spreadsheets and those requesting specific process data.
REACh Compliance Declaration
The EC Regulation No 1907/2006 on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACh) entered into force on June 1 2007 subject to amendments. The identification of a substance as a Substance of Very High Concern (SHVC) and its inclusion in the Candidate list creates certain legal obligations for the importers, producers and suppliers of an article that contains such a substance.
CGUK LTD is a downstream user and as such we are liable for information towards the customers. We are not liable for registration of substances. Goods which are purchased from CGUK LTD do not have to be registered. The responsibility for registration of any Chemicals which may possibly be subject to registration contained within our products have to be registered solely by our suppliers.
We are in constant contact with our suppliers to avoid the inclusion of Substance of Very High Concern being included in our products. Based on the responses from our suppliers no materials from the ECHA Candidate List with >0.1 mass percent are included in our goods or packages materials.
Should our goods or packages materials contain SVHC* materials in the future, we will inform our customers if the reporting requirements are fulfilled.
