Dear Eastern Screw Customer:
Allesco Industries, Inc. and its subsidiaries including Eastern Screw Company have reviewed the current REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) legislation and its applicability to the products manufactured, imported, stocked and distributed for sale.
As defined in Chapter 2 of the REACH legislation, the products approved for sale including both domestic and international imports are considered ‘articles’. For the purposes of this rule, ‘articles’ are defined as objects which during production are given a special shape, surface or design, that determines its function to a greater degree than does its chemical composition.
In reviewing the individual products distributed and sold by Eastern Screw Company for the purposes of substances on the list of SVHCs (Substances of Very High Concern), it has been determined that there are currently no SVHCs present in any Eastern Screw Company products including:
Category 1 or 2 carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction (CMR) products covered under the original Directive 67/548/EEC or any amendments including; EU Regulations EC No. 1272/2008, Annex XIII EC No. 253/2011, and Annex XVII which apply to all 223 substances (as of January 17, 2022) on SVHC candidate list.
Additionally the materials distributed and sold by Eastern Screw Company are not intended to release any ‘SVHC listed’ substances during normal use or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use. As a result of this determination; the products distributed by Eastern Screw, Inc. are not considered to be applicable to the Registration or Authorization Requirements of REACH.
This determination is based upon information which Allesco Industries, Inc. believes is reliable. We will continue to monitor the published ECHA listings of SVHC candidates and amendments to ensure the information contained above remains current and accurate. Any changes in status will be documented.
