RoHS and REACH Compliance No PB Logo

RoHS and REACH are European driven legislation that were developed to help maintain worker safety and environmental safety based on the removal of hazardous substances and chemicals, and helping individuals and companies identify and manage the chemicals used in the manufacturing of their products. JNJ Industries has always been an environmentally conscious company, using chemicals that are low in toxicity and environmentally safe. Our GlobalTech chemical line has always been CFC and HCFC free and do not contain ozone depletors. Our products do not contain any of the substances identified by RoHS and are all REACH compliant.

RoHS Compliance Definition

The definition and aim of the RoHS directive is quite simple. The RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at raw homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component. In the EU, some military and medical equipment are exempt from RoHS compliance.

What is RoHS?  RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.

Why is RoHS compliance important? The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling. Being RoHS compliant means you are doing the right thing for your workers and for the planet.

REACH Legislation

REACH is the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It entered into force on 1st June 2007. It streamlines and improves the former legislative framework on chemicals of the European Union. Classification Legislation

Classification Legislation

CLP is the Regulation on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures. It entered into force on 20 January 2009. It aligns existing EU legislation to the United Nations Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Conflict Minerals

To the best of our knowledge, JNJ does not use any conflict minerals in the manufacture of any JNJ Industries products or purchase materials from any companies that deal in or with conflict minerals. Being a global supplier, we have elected to fully comply with the Congo Minerals Act of 2009.
