Regulatory and Materials Information

The materials used in our broad portfolio of products are compliant with various regulatory bodies including NSF, RoHs, REACH and more. Copies of our certificates and additional information can be found here.
The RoHS Directive stands for "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment." This Directive bans the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. 
NSF International, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, develops and publishes consensual criteria that govern the acceptability of materials and equipment used in food and beverage processing. They also do testing to verify the performance of materials or devices to their published criteria. CPC lists many of its product lines under the criteria of NSF/ANSI Standards, which governs components used in food and beverage contact applications. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration publishes, through the Code of Federal Regulations, standardized criteria that govern the acceptability of materials used in food contact. The U.S. Department of Agriculture publishes similar standards that mirror FDA criteria. Neither agency approves or disapproves products for particular applications. Most of CPC's products are made using resins that comply with applicable FDA or USDA standards. When necessary, the standard o-ring seals are replaced with specific, recognized materials.
