Record new REACh data from manufacturers

Record new REACh data from manufacturers

Hello,

The new REACh rules/guidance requires some changes in the data exchanges between companies. Below are the main changes that I've identified :

- The SVHC must be located. In a complex part (with several articles), we must know where the SVHC are present at > 0.1%.

- The safe conditions of use must be communicated. For each couple SVHC-location we must have the ability to attach a text that will be communicated to the end users.

- The mass of the article or products are no longer required, as well as the SVHC concentrations.

 

=> In addition to the redesign of the REACh report, new fields must be added in the database, and the upload tools must be modified in accordance.
I hope this description will help defining the WPA evolutions that we need in keeping environmental compliant and friendly !

 

Regards,
Pierre.

The REACH "One an article, always an article" guidance has now outstripped the ability of WPA to handle the data correctly.  A simple solution based on a part to be an Article is not sufficient, since a part could be a mixture/solution (which by definition is NOT an Article), or a part could be a complex object assembled from many simple Articles. 

 

It has been proposed (Sep. 20, 2017) that the IPC-1752A standad for material declarations include an Article flag or attribute in its upcoming B revision.  WPA should align with IPC on this development.
