Statement REACH – Lead in Brass as SVHC-substance
Under the REACH Regulation Article 33, we are obliged to inform you when a delivered product exceeds a substance of the SVHC candidate list for the authorization process (https://echa.europa.eu/en/candidate-list-table) to more than 0,1%. Reference quantity is the smallest component of a compound product (definition under https://www.reach-clp-biozid-helpdesk.de/de/REACH/Erzeugnisse/EuGH-Urteil/EuGH-Urteil.html).
The supplied IBEDA products, especially Gas Safety Devices (Flashback arrestors, Quick-action couplings, Coupling pins) contain in different components of Brass (also the housing or body) the substance lead (EC Number: 231-100-4, CAS Number: 7439-92-1) to more than 0.1%.
Since lead is bound as an alloying element and therefore no exposure is expected, no additional information on safe use is necessary.
Moreover, labelling on the product is not necessary – this means, there is no need to label that it contains an SVHC-substance.
