Chemical compounds and substances
Contents
This specification describes IKEA bans and restrictions on certain chemical compounds and substances due to national or international regulations and/or health and environmental concerns.

Implementation of changes
Requirements regarding lead in metals shall be implemented from packaging date stamp 1219 (year 2012 week 19). All other changes in this specification, version no AA-10911-10, shall be implemented the latest from packaging date stamp 1137 (year 2011 week 37). Packaged products having a packaging date stamp earlier than as specified above shall be shipped to IKEA before shipping products compliant with this version of the specification. When new substances are added to lists of substances (in laws, in standards or from authorities) that are referred to in this specification, the requirements for these substances shall be fulfilled within four months after the substance has been added to the cited list, unless otherwise specified.

About this specification
The purpose of IKEA requirements concerning chemical substances in IKEA products is to:  Minimise harmful effects to customers' health and to the environment from IKEA products.  Ensure compliance of IKEA articles with health and environmental regulations in all IKEA markets. Unless otherwise stated, the requirements in this specification are valid for each separate homogeneous material in the article. This specification concerns chemical substances in all materials and components in IKEA articles, except:  Surface coatings and coverings that are included in the scope of IOS-MAT-0066.  Leather that is included in the scope of IOS-MAT-0011.  Artificial leather that is included in the scope of IOS-MAT-0079.  Candle raw materials, see instead IOS-MAT-0049.  Adhesives used in wood-based materials that are included in the scope of IOS-MAT-0069.  Electrical materials/components as defined in IOS-PRG-0027.  Latex in mattresses that is in the scope of IOS-MAT-0012.  According to other exceptions to the scope that may be made in the Technical Description (TED) for a particular article or in other, material-specific IKEA specifications.

The requirements stated in section 2, are valid for all materials and all complete products. This includes all material categories not specifically listed in the different sections of this specification; but it does not include the exceptions to IOS-MAT-0010 listed above. Unless otherwise stated, requirements in section 4 are valid for the complete product including any materials that otherwise are outside the scope of this specification. Further chemical and documentation requirements for the product or constituent materials can be specified in the individual technical description or in other IKEA specifications (for instance children’s articles and food-contact products). Note that the requirements apply to materials in products. This means that it is not sufficient to secure compliance for a material as it is used in production; avoiding contamination during the manufacturing process and during storage and transport is also necessary.

Requirements for testing, self declaration and other documentation

Verifying tests Verifying tests shall only be made at IKEA approved test laboratories. Contact IKEA for a list of approved laboratories. When ordering verifying tests, the orderer shall inform the laboratory that IKEA has permission to receive copies of the test report from the laboratory. Samples of articles for testing shall be representative of produced articles, and samples of materials shall be representative of the material when ready for use. The IKEA supplier shall follow any specific instructions from IKEA that may be given, in order to secure that the sample is representative. Sample information The test report shall, in addition to the test result, state a full identification of the tested sample. For a test on complete IKEA article, the identification is:  IKEA supplier number and name.  Article number and name.  Date stamp (or production date). For a material sample the identification is:  Material producer.  Material description (type of material such as physical characteristics, colour etc) and its identification code.  Material batch number or equivalent. If a test is made on a material that is already part of an article, then identification according to above both for the article and for the material is required (i.e., all six bullet points). This information shall be provided to the laboratory in the test order. Requirements on test reports and self declarations Test reports and self declarations shall, unless otherwise stated, be:  renewed when changes are made which influence the content of a material (e.g. change of sub-supplier of any material or change of composition or supplier of any chemical product that may remain in the final material/article);  in any case renewed within 12 months;  in English;  registered in the IKEA Connect database within four weeks of date of issue (or of receipt by the IKEA supplier) 1 . Supply chain communication and control When purchasing raw materials, semi-finished goods, components, or chemical products, the IKEA requirements shall be quoted. The material producer/supplier shall confirm fulfilment e.g. on the invoice or on self-declaration. It shall be possible to trace used raw materials/semifinished goods, components for each date stamp via records connecting raw material batches etc to production weeks.
The supplier shall use Connect within three months from the date the supplier has received training in Connect. Meanwhile, any document not uploaded to Connect shall be retained by the supplier for at least 15 years. On request, the document shall be provided to IKEA, in English, by the next working day. © IKEA of Sweden AB • 2011 Page 4 (40)
