REACH is a European Chemicals Regulation. The abbreviation REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. This Regulation covers the documentation of the use of various chemicals in the manufacture of electronics components. This information is used to gain more insight into the use of the various chemicals and thereby create a healthier living environment.

The REACH regulation entered into force on 1 June 2007.

The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through  the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness
of the EU chemicals industry. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.

Based on REACH directive, Nijkerk Electronics, being a distributor of electronic components, is not a manufacturer or importer of chemical products and also does not distribute these.

The components supplied by Nijkerk Electronics will not release any substance mentioned in the REACH regulation under normal and reasonably foreseeable circumstances of application.

Nijkerk Electronics does not intend to register any substances as we do not sell substances, preparations nor articles containing any substances that are intended to be released at any time.

Being a distributor without any development and manufacturing responsibility, Nijkerk Electronics totally relies on the manufacturers declarations according to obligations under REACH.

Nijkerk Electronics is following the developments and working closely with our suppliers involved with REACH requirements in order to have the latest information about the components we are supplying.

Due to the complexity of this issue and the number of products and manufacturers we kindly ask for your understanding that we are not able to answer customerspecific questionnaires nor sign any general and comprehensive statement on our behalf.
