Background information on the three regulatory lists we're most commonly asked to help screen against: 

CA Proposition 65
EU REACH compliance
EU RoHS compliance

 

CA Prop 65.  California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as the ballot initiative, Proposition 65, was created to protect the state’s drinking water from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. It also requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to these chemicals.

  • Are you aware that someone living in California may order a product online, and that product must also have a warning label regardless of its origin? 
  • With Toxnot, you can instantly know if your products contain one of these listed chemicals. You can either create a label informing your customer, or find an alternative substance not on the list.

 

EU REACH  Within the European Union, the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) law was enacted in 2006 to protect human health and the environment. It also calls for the progressive substitution of the most dangerous chemicals.

  • Toxnot helps with both the evaluation of chemicals by easily flagging chemicals on the REACH list and alternative options by comparing similar chemicals in the Toxnot database.

 

 

 

EU RoHS  The European Union has been enforcing legislation restricting the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment since 2003, the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). It also promotes the collection and recycling of this equipment.

  • Toxnot provides a platform for product manufacturers to easily flag substances regulated by RoHS, compare chemicals on this list for safer alternatives, and report on your findings.
