Railwayscenics policy is only to designate a product as RoHS compliant when we are confident that the product is fully compliant. We use a simple Yes and No designation on our web site and the meaning of these designations is as follows:
RoHS Compliant YES
Based on information provided by our suppliers, this product does NOT contain the substances restricted by the RoHS legislation at levels over the maximum concentration values.
No RoHS Designation
Products that are outside the scope of the RoHS legislation and products for which we do not have enough information from our suppliers to confidently confirm their RoHS compliance status have no designation on our web site. Customers that wish to purchase a RoHS compliant version of any product that is not designated as RoHS compliant YES should contact our sales office or check available alternatives on our web site as we may be able to provide a suitable product from our extensive range.
On the 1st June 2007 the REACH (Registration Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) European regulation came into effect. The purpose of these regulations is to regulate the use of chemicals within the EU, and particularly those substances of very high concern (SHVCs). Railwayscenics are fully aware of the legislation and the projected timetable for compliance with its obligations.
Railwayscenics are committed to meeting our obligations under these REACH regulations as an importer and distributor of articles. We have spoken with our suppliers, and to the best of our knowledge none of the substances classified as SVHCs are contained within any of the products sold by Railwayscenics on the Railwayscenics website. Furthermore, all products imported, distributed or sold by Railwayscenics are classified as Articles within the REACH regulations. None of our products contain substances intended to be released under normal or foreseeable conditions of use, and therefore at the present time we are exempt from any requirement to register under REACH regulations.
