ROHS Statement

RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. Where applicable and not covered by the Waste Batteries Accumulators (Placing on the Market) Regulation, Creasefield Ltd are RoHS compliant.


 

REACH Compliance Statement

Creasefield Ltd are fully aware of the requirements of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals) the current system for controlling chemicals in Europe. Creasefield Ltd is classed as a user under the REACH definitions and therefore we are not required to pre-register or register our products.

To ensure continued supply, orders placed with our suppliers are on the condition that, where applicable, any item containing chemical substances has been preregistered as required under REACH.


Battery Directive and WEEE Statement

Creasefield Ltd, as a battery pack producer, is committed to managing and improving our effect on the environment. As such, we note the appropriate legislation at this point in time, regarding the marketing and recycling of batteries is the Battery Directive 91/157/EEC. For takeback information click here.

We also note, from the contents of this Directive, that Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment does not apply to batteries and accumulators used in electrical and electronic equipment. The Directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) states that batteries contained within electronic equipment should be easily accessible for recycling or recovery according to WEEE.


Conflict Minerals Statement

We support ending the violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the “Conflict Region”, which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. As a result the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted final rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals,” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.

The rules require manufacturers who file certain reports with the SEC to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain “conflict minerals” that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of those products.

The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future. We support these requirements to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and in surrounding countries, which has been partially financed by the exploitation and trade of “conflict minerals”.

OUR COMMITMENT:

  1. Support the aims and objectives of the U.S. legislation on the supply of “conflict minerals”.
  2. Do not knowingly procure specified metals that originate from facilities in the “Conflict Region” that are not certified as “conflict free”.
  3. Ensure compliance with these requirements, and ask our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to assure that specified metals are being sourced only from Mines and smelters outside the “Conflict Region” or Mines and smelters which have been certified by an independent third party as “conflict free” if sourced within the “Conflict Region”.

This due diligence includes having our suppliers provide written evidence documenting that raw materials used to produce gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten, used in the materials to manufacture components and products supplied to Creasefield, originate from outside the “Conflict Region” or if they originate from within the “Conflict Region”, that the mines or smelters be certified as “conflict free” by an independent third party.

The aim is to ensure that only “conflict free” materials and components are used in products that we procure. If we discover the use of these minerals produced in facilities that are considered to be “non-conflict free”, in any material, parts or components we procure, we will take appropriate actions to transition product to be “conflict free”.
