MAB always attentive to REACH changes

Metallurgica Alta Brianza Spa continues its policy of maximum attention to the directives on Quality and the Environment. In particular, the application of EC Regulation No. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and Council of 18 December 2006 (REACH). This regulation anticipates constant monitoring of some substances and mixtures used in the production cycles and possible present in the items manufactured. ECHA periodically updates the Candidate List LINK with the insertion of new substances. On 27 June 2018, a list of 10 new substances was published, including Lead, an element of interest for the metal sector. Subsequent to article 33 of the REACH Re., suppliers of an item containing a substance in a concentration greater than 0.1% by weight, must provide sufficient information to their customers. The percentage of lead in steels for high speed mechanical machining and other qualities with the intentional addition of Lead can have a maximum concentration of this element of up to 0.35% by weight. (See REACH declaration) LINK

Also on the issue of attention to Quality, MAB recently analysed the changes to the RoHS-2 Directive, which prescribes that certain substances, specifically including lead, cannot be contained in electrical and electronic equipment (Aee). Nevertheless, maximum concentration thresholds are permitted in “homogeneous materials” and some exemptions are provided for in relation to specific applications. The Metallurgica Alta Brianza S.p.A. production process consists in the transformation of laminated material, purchased within the European Community, into drawn, peeled and ground material, classified in article 3 of the directive in question as “Homogeneous Material”. Of the exemptions concerning lead for the metal sector, exemption 6a of Annex III is of interest, relative to: lead as an alloying element in steel for machining purposes containing up to 0.35% lead by weight. Be informed that in the European Union Official Gazette, L. 123, the related DELEGATED DIRECTIVE (EU) 2018/739 was published, which can be consulted at the following LINK by which renewal of the exemptions expired on 21 July 2016 is confirmed.
