Reach Status Information

Wondering what the different Reach statuses mean?

Digi-Key is aware of the SCIP database notification requirements going into effect January 5, 2021. We are working with our supply chain to acquire the required information and make the required SCIP database submissions, as required by the European Union (EU) Waste Framework Directive (WFD) (2008/98/EC).

Digi-Key will display REACH status icons and dates to indicate which SVHC (substance of very high concern) update the product was identified as being compliant. The icons and explanation of the REACH statuses are explained below. A status date alongside the icon will be noted when applicable. REACH status information supplied by Digi-Key is based solely on information provided to Digi-Key by the manufacturer. Digi-Key is not responsible for the accuracy of this information.
