European Guideline REACH

Declaration about so-called substances of very high concern (obligation of notification according to article 33 of the REACH-Regulation EC1907/2006)

Dear Customer,
I am responding on behalf of Eaton Corporation concerning an inquiry of your company received by email.
As far as Eaton’s obligations regarding the EU REACH-Regulation are concerned, we have set up a process
to evaluate whether so-called substances of very high concern (SVHC) are contained in products supplied to
customers located in the European Union.

To our best current knowledge, we have no information available that any of the currently 151 listed SVHC is
contained above 0.1 mass percent in the products supplied to you.

However, should above mentioned status change or we retrieve information from our suppliers that any
SVHC above 0.1 mass percent is contained in products supplied to you, then we will inform you according to
the requirements as outlined in the article 33.1 of the REACH regulation.
Thank you again for your inquiry.


Dr. Heinz Huesmann
Product Stewardship Manager – Electrical Sector
