Quality and Regulations

Our quality policy is an important component of our corporate policy. Hemabo places great
importance on the high quality of its services, as well as the continuous improvement of the
quality of its services and internal processes. This is safeguarded by the combination of highly
proficient personnel, innovative machines, and ERP solutions. The choice of material is also
important. There are a number of EU directives and regulations concerning materials.

EU regulation for chemical elements REACH (EC) No 1907/2006

REACH is the European chemical regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation,
Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals.

Under REACH, Hemabo is classified as a downstream user, as it neither makes chemical
materials or substances, nor imports them into the EU. As a result, the REACH’s obligation to
register does not directly apply to Hemabo—a tool manufacturer. Nevertheless, we have
informed our suppliers about REACH and have asked them to fulfil their obligations, including
the registration obligation, arising from the regulation.

EU regulation for restriction of hazardous substances RoHS (EU) No 2011/65/EU

The Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is a European directive which
restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The
substances in the directive may only be used in electrical and electronic equipment if used
below the maximum concentration value by weight in homogeneous materials as listed
· Lead (<0.1%)
· Mercury (<0.1%)
· Cadmium (0.01%)
· Chromium VI (0.1%)
· Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) (<0.1%)
· Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) (0.1%)
· Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) (0.1%)
· Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) (0,1%)
· Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) (0,1%)
· Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) (0,1%)
Hemabo only processes semi-finished goods which our suppliers have declared to be in
compliance with RoHS guidelines, insofar as they are able to verify.
Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions regarding our materials.
