REACh Compliance

Background of REACh

The European Union Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 establishes the Regulation, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACh). The regulation initiated the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) which manages the Technical and Scientific aspects of REACh. This regulation defines the duties and obligations for companies in the European Union (EU) that manufacture or import articles and flow down through the supply chain.


As a Thermal spray coatings processor, New England Plasma Development Corporation monitors the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) within our product line to the threshold values declared by the ECHA registered on the SVHC Candidate List found at the link below.

To the best of our knowledge, NEP does not process any products exceeding the limits set forth by the ECHA.


New England Plasma Development Corporation is committed to:

  • Identifying all substances within our products and ensuring the flow down of requirements to suppliers (manufacturers and distributors).
  • Working closely with the supply chain to minimize potential SVHC risks.
  • Communicating information to relevant stakeholders in regards to REACh requirements.
  • Ensuring the receipt of Safety Data Sheets and providing information on content.
  • Sharing information with customers regarding hazards, risks or safety condition, as applicable
  • Consistently monitoring the presence of substances having more than 0.1% against the items from the SVHC List and responding appropriately.
