ROHS Compliance Statement

SN005-03 ROHS Declaration of Conformity

The European ROHS directive 2011/65/EU restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. To the best of our knowledge, based on supplier part and material declarations, none of the products we produce for our customers contain any of the RoHS substances by weight in homogeneous materials above the maximum concentration values defined in Annex II of the ROHS directive 2011/65/EU.

Spark Holland will continue to monitor its suppliers and prevent ROHS substances to enter our products.

Conflict Minerals

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.

Dodd-Frank Act
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 Compliance Statement

SN007-07 REACH 211 SVHC Declaration of Conformity

The EU regulation EC 1907/2006 which covers the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances is an EU regulation that became effective on 01 June 2007. The purpose of this legislation is to ensure human and environmental health by regulating Substances of Very High Concern, or SVHC’s.

Spark Holland BV is a downstream user of any SVHC substances that are used in supplied parts for our products. Based on declarations from our suppliers no SVHC substances are used in supplied parts for our products. Spark does not add any SVHC substances during its manufacturing processes.

To the best of our knowledge none of the end products we produce for our customers have any SVHC substances in concentrations above the minimums contained in the legislation, typically < 0.1% w/w.

Spark Holland will continue to monitor its suppliers, and if any substances begin to be included in our products that require registration, we will inform our customers according to the REACH legislation.

Within analytical laboratories knowledge of operators shift more and more from technical know-how to expertise on acquired data. Future equipment used to generate analytical data should be more user-friendly, less error-prone, and be able to predict maintenance to fulfill increased expectations within the laboratory environment.

Spark Holland B.V. has initiated a project with a focus on predictive maintenance and troubleshooting for analytical ultra-high pressure pumps. The goal of the project is to create less downtime and more accurate maintenance on the instruments. A diagnostic tool will be developed, using digital twin and machine learning technology.
