    Current status of REACH

      As a downstream user, now with the major list of SVHC listed on reach coming to 173 substances, how many of these directly impact electronic components?

       

      I haven't heard anything from component manufacturers or suppliers that indicate a high level of risk or the potential for product withdrawal from the market - this includes plastic and PVC in cable and moulded parts.

       

      The plating industry seems to have cleaned up its act with RoHS and Reach, so my main area of interest seems to be the actual chemicals I buy in - glue, cleaning fluids and other (already COSHH registered substances) that I have on site.

       

      It is fair to say that if I have any products coming into my site with a warning label, I should investigate them further but that the majority of the others are likely to be safe?
