What is the REACH Compliance for Europe - 173 Substances on SVHC List


The European Union issued a new Directive 2011/65/EU on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electronics and Electronic Equipment (known as RoHS2). There are now 173 substances. Xmultiple connectors comply to REACH for all 173 substances. On January 12, 2017 four new substances was added to the list and it was published in accordance with Article 59(10) of the REACH Regulation.

Xmultiple products are REACH compliant. Xmultiple have produced the following statement as a guide to its distributors/Customers on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances (REACH).

The REACH document states that it is the responsibility of the importer to comply with REACH. All EU countries have a responsibility to comply.

Producers of the chemicals listed are required to notify ECHA if any of the listed substances are present in quantities produced over 1 ton in a calendar year or the substance is present above a concentration of 0.1% weight by weight. Notification exemptions are applied if the substance is already registered for use or if exposure can be excluded.

Xmultiple has releasing an updated REACH statement for our products to reflect the new substances added to the SVHC list.

The REACH document has two important parts concerning our connectors, Registration and Notification.


We have considered the document and do not believe that the importers of our connectors have a responsibility to register any substance with ECHA. The criteria to register are that the product is a substance or Article. The connectors are clearly an article and do not release any substances as part of their normal working function.


ECHA have officially released the list of the substances that must be notified to them if they are in our connectors.

Xmultiple uses third party companies to do the chemical analysisˇ¦s to check if any of these substances are in our connectors. Reach certifications are provided for each of our products, please call Xmultiple's office in your area.
