New Compliance Requirements

Over the course of this past year more environmental compliance regulations have been brought to Crescent's attention with inquires regarding our adherence. Crescent has been compliant with the ROHS, ELV, AND WEEE directives since 2005. Three other mandates, mainly associated with the EU (European Union) are listed below.

-Compliance to the PFOS Directive Including PFOA

Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid and the related compound perfluoro-octanoic acid are both substances that Crescent has no association with in any of our products or outside processes. There are mainly related to the textile industry and have no connection to our fastener products.

 

-Compliance with Halogen Free Mandate

This mandate is not applicable. We manufacture nothing that would contain halogen, chlorine, or bromine.

 

-Compliance with the New European ?REACH? Regulation

Crescent's product only fall under the "articles" category. We do not presently use any of the substances on the Potential Substances of Very High Concern list and do not anticipate that any substances likely to be included will pertain to Crescent either. We have no articles with Intended Release. Please be advised that after several REACH seminars, it has been determined that Crescent will not have to register related to our product. For more information, please read our REACH Compliance press release.

 

Compliance with Halogen Free Mandate
