Substances of Concern in Ricoh products
Ricoh Group’s Green Procurement Standards specifies substances that are prohibited to be contained in Ricoh products and product packaging delivered to customers other than the exemptions allowed by the authorities. Ricoh requests all suppliers not to be contained the prohibited substances in their parts and materials delivered to Ricoh accordingly. This Environmental Specification is integrated into Ricoh’s design guideline requirements, and product development processes.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) manages the REACH regulation 1907/2006, including the candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHC), and Annex XVII listing restricted substances. Article 33 of REACH requires a supplier of articles containing a listed candidate SVHC in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) to provide the recipient with sufficient information, available to the supplier, to allow safe use of the article including, as a minimum the name of that substance.
Some Ricoh products may contain articles which use SVHCs and all of these products are safe for use when used as intended, and in accordance with the applicable usage instructions. All Ricoh products that contain SVHCs more than 0.1% by weight announced by ECHA effective up to the date of this declaration have been loaded into the SCIP database effective from January 5, 2021 onwards. Please consult the database for specific information on which SVHCs are present in which products. Products labelled with the Blue Angel Mark generally do not contain SVHC in housings, housing parts, toners or inks. Exceptions may apply in accordance with the Blue Angel criteria.
All Ricoh supply products for Office Print products do not contain any Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) more than 0.1% by weight announced by ECHA effective up to the date of this declaration. For professional inks please refer to the Safety Data Sheets portal.
