All the chemical substances present in our final products are evaluated in line with the CLP scheme (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008).The final products have been classified according to the CLP regulation with adequate labeling as a consequence. 

Meanwhile JSR Micro NV material safety data sheets are in line with the Regulation2010/453/EC and will be updated continuously in order to remain in compliance with the CLP and REACH Regulation. Updated versions of safety data sheets are sent as soon as possible to the customers.

JSR Micro NV has successfully notified all manufactured or imported substances into the classification and labeling Inventory as required by regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on the classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP).

Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)

REACH requires a special authorization procedure for substances identified by a scientific evaluation as being of very high concern.

The authorization procedure under REACH is subject to clear rules and proceeds through several steps.

Candidate list

The inclusion of a substance in the "candidate list" according to Article 59(1) of REACH results in a number of obligations.

Article 31(1) of REACH, among other things, obliges the supplier of a substance included in the "candidate list" to provide his customer with a safety data sheet. This results in no additional action on our part, since it has long been our established practice to supply a safety data sheet for each product, even when there is no legal obligation.

Article 33 of REACH further obliges the supplier of a product(chemical products but also articles) containing a "candidate list" substance in a concentration of more than 0.1 % (w/w) to inform the customer at least of the name of the substance concerned. Every time new substances are included in the "candidate list" we check whether our products contain such substances in amounts above the limit mentioned and inform our customers as soon as possible.

Annex XIV

If products supplied by JSR Micro NV contain substances included in the so called Annex XIV of the REACH regulation - and their use is therefore subject to authorization - JSR Micro NV will contact the customers involved immediately.

ROHS- Battery directives

JSR Micro NV is supplying products for the manufacturing of EEE 'Electrical and electronic equipment or Batteries and is therefore fully compliant to the new RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) that entered into force on 21 July 2011 and the DIRECTIVE 2006/66/EC of 6 September 2006 on batteries and accumulators.
