REACH is an initiative in Europe to gather information on all chemicals used in Europe and potentially restrict the use of hazardous chemicals across all industries. Belden is committed to meeting all of the legal requirements under REACH. The candidate list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) is ever changing. Download the latest REACH Declaration. To find out more about the REACH regulation, visit the European Commission's REACH website.
Belden strives consistently to stay ahead of the curve on the government RoHS regulations. To check compliance on a specific Belden part number, enter the part number in the search area of the eCatalog. Each RoHS-compliant product also offers the option of printing a product-specific RoHS certificate. If you need a certificate of RoHs compliance for a special part number, one can be provided upon request.
Belden Connectivity maintains product compliance status for Restriction on Hazardous Substances in the International markets such as China and Europe.
In order to meet global environmental product requirements - in part specified by the European Union's Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, the European Union's End-of-Life Vehicle Directive (ELV), the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, California Proposition 65, and China RoHS - Belden has developed a restricted materials specification to encompass all raw materials, parts, components or products that are ultimately incorporated into Belden product.
Belden's European facilities are ISO 14001 certified, however, Belden's U.S. facilities are not. Belden does not have formal environmental programs at our U.S. facilities.
Belden does not have SDS information for our products because cable/wire is considered an "article" based on the OSHA definition of "article." SDS information is not required for "articles." If an SDS is needed for an element(s) that is part of the cable composition, we can provide SDS information for the element(s).
