MG Chemicals Ltd. supports the elimination of conflict resources trade in accord with the Dobb-Frank financial reform. Our policy is to only use materials that haven’t financed or benefited DRC armed groups and are therefore either “DRC Conflict Free” or made from recycled materials. Our suppliers are made directly aware of this requirement and are asked to retrace the origin down to the original smelter or refiner sources. Further, our suppliers are asked to report changes to their conflict minerals sourcing that would impact the DRC Conflict Free status.

Several of our products have been registered as nonfood compounds with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. These products are certified suitable for use in food processing facilities in accordance to their intended uses as long as no direct food contact or contamination is allowed.
NSF International/Nonfood Compounds Registration Program (NSF)
NSF International launched its voluntary Nonfood Compounds Registration Program in 1999 to re-introduce the previous authorization program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Products eligible for NSF Registration include all compounds used in and around food establishments (nonfood compounds), such as disinfectants and lubricants, and those used for pre-processing of food proprietary substances, such as fruits/vegetable washing agents. NSF Registration assures inspection officials and end users that our formulation and labels meet appropriate food safety regulations.
You may download a certification letter from the NSF from the Food Safe Certifications table.

All MG Chemicals products are classified and labelled in accordance with the Global Harmonized System (GHS). This international system for communication health and safety information in labels and safety data sheets is widely used around the world. GHS promotes regulatory efficiency, facilitates trade, simplifies compliance, reduces inter-jurisdictional hazard discrepancies.

REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The new law entered into force on 1 June 2007.
The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, innovative capability and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry should be enhanced. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.
RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substance, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC) originated in the European Union and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronics products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must meet RoHS compliance standards. RoHS impacts the entire electronics industry.
The substances restricted under the RoHS directive include lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
Any business that sells applicable electrical or electronics products, sub-assemblies or components directly to RoHS countries, or sells to resellers, distributors or integrators that in turn sell products to these countries, is affected if they utilize any of the restricted materials.
With the exception of our leaded solder wires, MG Chemicals does not produce any products containing any of the six substances controlled by RoHS.
