AB Electronics UK provide a range of electronic products that meet environmental regulations, including REACH (Registration, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals, European Union Regulation (EC) 1907/2006) and EU Directive 2002/95/EC and subsequent amendments of the European Parliament and of the Council of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).

REACH requires article suppliers to inform recipients if an article contains a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) in excess of 0.1% by weight.

A list of SVHC chemicals can be found at

Based on the material content certifications provided by AB Electronics UK’s suppliers, none of these substances are present in the materials we use in our products, including packing and shipping materials. Therefore, AB Electronics UK’s products do not contain any of these SVHC substances in excess of 0.1% by weight.

All AB Electronics UK products are compliant with the RoHS Directive (EU Directive 2002/95/EC and subsequent amendments)
