In addition to a list of equipment parts, a boxed product also includes individual items of Sales Packaging which are provided to the consumer.  For example, a cardboard box, a polythene bag to contain items of equipment such as batteries etc.  Each of these items of Sales Packaging is defined as an Article under the REACH Regulation. Philips and other leading OEMs require their suppliers to provide a regulatory compliance declaration for each of these Sales Packaging part numbers.   Note that other types of packaging which are not provided to the consumer (for example, transport packaging) are covered by the packaging compliance statement PDF that the supplier can create on BOMcheck.  

If you supply Sales Packaging such as this (i.e. packaging part numbers which are provided with the finished product to the consumer) then you can use the ‘Add Sales Packaging Declaration’ tool in the Super User account to create specific declarations for these Sales Packaging part numbers.  The ‘Add Sales Packaging Declaration’ tool covers the substance restrictions and declaration requirements that are relevant to packaging, namely:

  • Packaging Directive substance restrictions
  • REACH Article 67 substance restrictions which are relevant to packaging
  • Substances which are restricted by other legislation which are relevant to packaging
  • REACH candidate list substances which may be found in packaging
  • Substances which are restricted in packaging by Philips and other leading OEMs (e.g. to comply with retailed restrictions)

The parts list must include the Sales Packaging part number in column 1 and the weight of the Sales Packaging part in column 3.  You will specify the unit of weight when you attach the parts list to the Sales Packaging declaration on BOMcheck.  Column 2 can include the part name for the Sales Packaging.
