EU Regulation 833/2014 and amended regulation 2022/2474

From the 30th September 2023, the EU has imposed tighter controls on the import of Iron and Steel, to ensure that and Iron and Steel containing Russian content does not enter the EU. As we are a manufacturer and stockist of product which contains Iron and Steel, we therefore wish to give the following statement.

‘Burnett & Hillman hereby declare that our Iron & Steel products as defined in annex XVII of Regulation 833/2014 and amended by Regulation 2022/2474 do not contain content of Russia origin’.

Conflict Minerals Declaration for the Dodd-Frank Act

Burnett & Hillman fully supports the compliance with provisions of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act pertaining to the use of Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten & Gold, as well as any other derivatives thereof determined by the United States Secretary of State (Designated Minerals) originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and neighbouring countries.
Burnett & Hillman are currently unaware of any of these Designated Minerals being used in our products.
Please be assured that Burnett & Hillman will carry out adequate diligence to ensure that no Conflict Minerals will be present in our products.

REACH and RoHS (3) Compliance Declaration

Burnett & Hillman are dedicated to supplying high quality hydraulic adaptors that meet environmental regulations including RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive 2002/95EC and RoHS2 Directive 2011/65/EU. This declaration incorporates EU2015/863(RoHS3).
REACH (Registration, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), EU Regulation (EC) 1907/2006.
Unless otherwise agreed all materials used for parts, manufactured or supplied by Burnett & Hillman after February 2006, comply with the relevant RoHS and REACH threshold limits.

RoHS Compliance

• Hexavalent Passivate has been replaced by Trivalent Passivate (currently MacDermid HydroKlad 500).
• RoHS Annex III Exemption 6(a)-1 Lead as an alloying element in steel for machining purposes and in galvanised steel containing up to 0.35 % lead by weight.
Exemption 6(a) was granted as there is no reliable alternative available. Lead is added to improve machineability of steel.

REACH Compliance

• Under the structure of REACH regulation Burnett & Hillman are manufacturers and suppliers of ‘articles’ to our customers, we do not manufacture ‘substances’ or ‘preparations’ and our articles do not involve the ‘intentional release of substances’. Accordingly, we foresee no registration or pre-registration requirements for the products we currently supply.
• Burnett & Hillman will monitor products supplied for the occurrence of ’Substances of Very High Concern’ (SVHC), as defined by REACH. This will be an ongoing process as the complete list will be released in stages.

California Proposition 65

Burnett and Hillman products are sold worldwide, and it would therefore be difficult to determine which products will ultimately be sold or brought into California. Burnett and Hillman will not test the level of every chemical listed in Proposition 65 in any of the wide range of our products. Burnett and Hillman believe the amount of one or more of these chemicals is minimal but cannot guarantee that the levels are below the limits required by the State of California. To ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements, Burnett and Hillman advise that warnings for lead content are passed on to relevant parties.
