REACH is a horizontal legislation controlling the risks associated with chemical substances throughout their whole life cycle, while RoHS is a product-specific vertical legislation focusing on hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).

Both REACH and RoHS restrictions are subject to change as additional substances are incorporated into the legislation.  As of December, 2021 virtually all National Technology products are compliant to RoHS 3 and REACH 219 with the exception of leaded solder as the final finish.

The National Technology Certificate of Compliance is clearly documented as to REACH/RoHS compliance.  In addition, National Technology will generate applicable compliance declarations upon request.
