Fischer Connectors has taken all necessary measures to be in conformity with the European Directive REACH (Directive 1907/2006/CE, Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals).
Fischer Connectors does not manufacture or import chemicals, thus does not need to do any registration or pre-registration. Today, all our business partners gave us sufficient guarantees that the materials and products used in the manufacturing of our connectors are and will be registered according to REACH Directive.
As the identification of a substance as Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and its inclusion in the Candidate List is an ongoing process, Fischer Connectors is reviewing the Candidate List regularly to continuously ensure its REACH conformity.

Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection
The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (July 2010) brought significant changes to financial regulation in the United States. It made changes in the American financial regulatory environment that affect all federal financial regulatory agencies and almost every part of the financial services industry.
Part of the Dodd-Frank Act is the Disclosures on Conflict Materials in or Near the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The US Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) is mandated to create rules that address potential conflict materials and to assess whether materials originating in or near the Democratic Republic of the Congo are benefiting armed groups in the area.
Fischer Connectors has contacted its suppliers and examined their statements on Conflict Materials for gold (Au) and tin (Sn), materials used on our connectors. To our best knowledge, Fischer Connectors is compliant with the Dodd-Frank Act.
