How can manufacturers proactively demonstrate REACH compliance?
The majority of manufacturers use declarations to confirm compliance with REACH SVHC. Some manufacturers choose to provide chemical breakdowns — called Full Material Disclosures (FMDs) — of their products instead.
It is up to the manufacturer to decide how this information is communicated to clients, given declaration content is not regulated under the REACH Regulation. However, conformity with declaration standards such as IPC-1752A is considered best practice.
Assent’s Material Declaration Tool helps manufacturers easily generate and manage FMDs.
