Information under REACH Article 33.

Dear RATIONAL customer and partner,

Since 2007, one of the most modern and strictest chemicals law has come into force: the European Regulation (EG) Nr. 1907/2006 (short “REACH”, Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals). The law aims to ensure that chemicals that pose a risk to the environment and health are not placed on the market, or are placed on the market only under strict restrictions.

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX:02006R1907-20200428

Our customers can always rely on the fact that RATIONAL-devices are both safe and harmless to health in use and comply with environmental law requirements. Accordingly, we comply with our obligation to consolidate knowleSGe of restricted substances in purchased parts from our suppliers and to inform our customers in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 Art. 33 in the case of substances of very high concern (SVHC), which are present in a concentration of more than 0.1% by weight. We can confirm that our products comply with the valid REACH regulation. About contained SVHC substances (> 0.1 weight-%) we would like to inform you in table 1 Combi Steamer and table 2 multifunctional cooking device (see annex).

The listed substances that comply with the permitted exemption are located exclusively in the electrical compartment of the cooking appliance and therefore do not come into contact with food or drinking water. We are also working on solutions to ensure that our products are free of SVHC candidates in the future.

Furthermore, our products are subject to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (2012/19/EC, "WEE II"). Our equipment is disposed of properly via a service provider.

RATIONAL is concerned about our common environment and your health: we want to improve constantly and are continuously working to take into account further global recommendations on environmental and health protection.
