Dodd Frank Act

Under the term conflict minerals, the Dodd-Frank Act defines the raw materials tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten and their derivatives originating from the DR Congo or neighbouring countries.

We do not require so-called conflict minerals within the meaning of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act (Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) for the manufacture or functionality of our products and services.

REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006

We act in accordance with EU Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH) of 18 December 2006 as the holder of an authorisation for the use of chromium trioxide until 15 February 2033.

Chromium trioxide is listed in Annex XIV of EU Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006. The uses of this substance are subject to authorisation. Without a corresponding authorisation, the manufacture, placing on the market and use of chromium trioxide is prohibited. In February 2021, Betz-Chrom submitted an individual application for the use of chromium trioxide to the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). With the implementing decision of the Commission of 12.06.2024, an authorisation of the European Parliament and the Council was granted to Betz-Chrom GmbH for the use of chromium trioxide. We have provided further information on REACH, the ban on chromium trioxide and our application for authorisation as a FAQ on REACH.

RoHS 2011/65/EU

RoHS (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances) is the guideline for the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.

We confirm that our services are RoHS 2011/65/EU compliant.
