F5 hardware products are considered articles under the
European Union Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 “Registration Evaluation,
Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals,” commonly referred to as REACH.
Under the original (pre-2015) interpretation of the legislation, to the best
of our knowledge F5 articles do not contain any SVHC substances above .1%
However, in 2015 a new court
interpretation of the law shifted declaration of .1% w/w of the finished,
imported article toward the “once an article, always an article” concept.
The following SVHC-219 substances are above .1% w/w of a component within
our product. This list is inclusive of the entire F5 product line.
all SVHCs may be present in every product. Product-specific information is
available upon request. Please note that F5 relies on our suppliers for
declarations to compile this list, and some data may be incomplete.
