REACH Compliance

REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)) is a European Union (EU) chemicals regulation that entered into force on 1 June 2007, with phased deadlines to 2018.

Entrust supports the overall REACH objective of improving the protection of human health and the environment. Our long standing policy is to provide products and services that are safe to use and have a low environmental impact throughout their lifecycle. We will meet all applicable REACH requirements and are committed to providing our customers with information about the chemicals in our products as needed to comply with REACH.

Our products are classified under REACH as "articles". Our products are not designed to intentionally release a chemical or substance during normal and/or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use. Therefore, no substances contained require registration with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) pursuant to REACH.

Under the terms of REACH, suppliers of articles generally must provide recipients with notification and information on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) if those substances are present above a concentration limit of 0.1% weight by weight (w/w). A list of such SVHCs, which are candidate substances for the authorization procedure, is established by the ECHA. Entrust Datacard products have been reviewed for SVHCs at the article-level and the SVHC(s) listed below may be present in the listed articles at levels above the concentration limit of 0.1% w/w.

Entrust will continue to review the SVHC candidate lists that are released by ECHA for additional substances and compliance. Furthermore, with respect to REACH as a whole, we will continue to evaluate any revisions or amendments to REACH in an effort to ensure continued compliance.

Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)

Entrust is in support of worldwide environmental initiatives designed to limit harmful substances in electronic and electrical equipment and implement appropriate methods of treatment, recovery and recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment through the European Union directives of Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

The RoHS directive establishes a consistent set of restrictions on the use of certain hazardous substances within each member state of the European Union. The directive contributes to the protection of human health and supports environmentally sound recovery and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment. More information on RoHS can be found at

A majority of our secure ID, card personalization systems and supplies are RoHS compliant. Download a declaration of conformity for any RoHS-compliant product below.

Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE)

The WEEE directive is for European Union member countries and can vary by country and within countries. This directive concerns setting collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods. Additional information on WEEE can be found at

Proposition 65 Compliance

The following warnings were recently added to Entrust's product user manuals and installation guides:

WARNING: This product contains chemicals, including lead, known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), which is known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) and Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), which are known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to

This warning has been added to Datacard’s manuals to comply with the State of California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, generally referred to as Proposition 65.

What is Proposition 65?

Proposition 65 is a far reaching law that applies to any company that manufactures products that may be sold or brought into California.

Proposition 65 requires warning labels on any product that contains, or may contain, any of more than 800 elements that the California Air Resources Board considers harmful.

Why has Entrust decided to place a warning in its manuals? All products that have power cords, USB cables, computer mouse cables, keyboard cables, monitor cables or other cables containing PVC, most likely have the Proposition 65 product warning requirements. The warning does not mean that Datacard's products will cause cancer or reproductive harm. Datacard believes that its products are not harmful when used as designed, but Datacard provides the warning as a result of the California law.
