Following the recent discovery of a hazardous material in some new-built compatible cartridges being sold in Europe, Print-Rite customers have been given total reassurance that all Print-Rite products comply with the most rigorous regulations.
Earlier in 2019, ETIRA (European Toner and Inkjet Remanufacturers Association) found the hazardous substance – decaBDE – in a series of new-built compatible cartridges in Europe. DecaBDE is now a substance of very high concern in the United States.
DecaBDE as a brominated flame retardant chemical has been prohibited in manufacturing or importing into the European Union since March, 2019, according to EU’s REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation.
The regulation addresses the environmental health and safety issues of the use of chemical substances, and the penalties for non-compliance. As a result, suppliers that violate REACH are most likely to be subjected to stiff fines and penalties. It is also illegal for resellers or distributors to sell cartridges that contravene the REACH restrictions, on the global market.
Suppliers who fail to comply with the new regulations also risk damaging their business reputation and may be subject to long border delays. Resellers and distributors must ensure that the supplier they choose complies with the REACH rules.
