Spark Holland’s objective will be to ensure compliance with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, for all Spark Holland identified suppliers. Currently Spark Holland’s policy is to work only with Suppliers who adhere to our environmental expectations and human rights policies.
On December 15, 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued proposed regulations implementing section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act” or “Act”), which requires reporting companies (also known as “issuers”) to make certain disclosures about the source of minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production of their manufactured products.
Spark Holland is closely monitoring and following the development of these SEC regulations to ensure that our policies, practices and supply chain partners comply with the requirements that will be established in the proposed SEC regulations.
REACH deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances, and entered into force on June 1, 2007. The aim of REACH is to further improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of certain chemical substances. It is legislation from the European Union, and applies to all suppliers (inside and outside Europe) that want to sell, import or manufacture chemicals and/or products containing certain chemicals in the European Union.
Spark Holland B.V. is well aware of the REACH regulation and is committed to meet obligations accordingly both as a downstream user and an importer of chemicals and articles as defined in the REACH regulations.
Spark Holland B.V. works with its suppliers to ensure pre-registration or registration of chemicals imported or manufactured within the European Union that are subject to the REACH regulation and used by Spark in its manufacturing process
This enables us to provide our customers with information about so called substances of very high concern (SVHC) from the candidate SVHC list of the REACH regulation, as required by article 33 of REACH (if those are present in a concentration of more than 0.1% of the weight of a product)
The RoHS2 declaration can be found on de CE declaration of conformity in the manual of the instrument.
