SIG UK have developed a Compliance Tracking System in order to provide all of our customers complete peace of mind when buying products.
For a number of years we have been working in conjunction with our suppliers to ensure that all of the products we stock meet essential regulatory compliance. This means we have access to compliance documents for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACh), Safety Data Sheets (SDS), CE Marking, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), European Timber Regulation (EUTR), Biocidal Products, Poisons and Explosive Precursors, Psychoactive Substances, Conflict Minerals and Modern Slavery.
SIG’s Compliance Tracking System (‘SIG Assured’) will always be evolving to meet with the fast pace of changing legislation and product development; you can be sure that we have robust processes to track and monitor who is, and which products, are compliant. In addition to this we have an on-line storage service in place that will provide you with up to date compliance and legal information about the suppliers we work with and the diverse range of products we stock.
Whenever you see the SIG ‘shield of assurance’ stamp, you can be confident that your purchase is fully traceable and supported by Compliance Tracking System appraisal.
Our Commitment to You
Stock items supplied by SIG have been considered against the following legislative requirements;
Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACh)
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) (e-SDS)
Product Safety & Handling Sheets (where an SDS is not warranted)
Declarations of Performance/ Conformity (DoP / DoC) / CE Marking (Conformité Européenne)
Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
European Timber Regulations (EUTR)
Poisons and Explosive Precursors
All products are supported by the appropriate relevant documentation
All documentation is validated for legal compliance
We have verified our suppliers claims around the legislative regulations of the products we source from them
We can trace the provenance of all our products
Peace of Mind
CE Marking can be exploited and in some cases attached to products that have not met the requirements of the applicable directive/regulation and their associated harmonised standards. Using products that do not legally conform to standards can leave you with inferior products which are not fit for purpose and can be extremely dangerous presenting huge safety implications
SIG compliance administration goes beyond merely accepting a supplier document by checking the overall accuracy of the claims being presented
Failure to comply with all legislative requirements could result in large fines, imprisonment or enforced trading restrictions
