The Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation is a chemical regulatory framework applicable in the 27 European Union member states, as well as the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries. The REACH regulation came into force on June 1, 2007. The regulation will be phased in over an eleven-year period, ending in 2018. The regulation is aimed at gathering information on chemical use and to improve public health and safety within the European Economic Area. Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) are identified on the REACH candidate list, which was last updated December 2016.
Onto Innovation is committed to working with our supply chain to fully comply with REACH, and to provide our customers with the appropriate information regarding SVHC within Onto Innovation products.
Based on the knowledge of Onto Innovation, products and product packaging sold into or delivered into The European Economic Area (EEA) do not contain Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) from the REACH Candidate List in a concentration above 0.1 percent weight by weight (w/w). Some cables and cable assemblies with the product may contain the following substances from the candidate list, well below a concentration of 0.1 percent weight by weight (w/w).
This declaration will be updated to reflect any future changes made to the Candidate List or the overall REACH regulation.
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances or 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 effective July 1, 2006. Substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP).
While Onto Innovation complies with RoHS on a best effort basis, our products are currently exempted from RoHS compliance per the Large Stationary Industrial Tools (LSIT) exception.
Onto Innovation provides this information to its customers upon request.
