Plan Tech – Compliance and Certifications

Plan Tech, Inc. manufactures and sells cast urethane parts and components to companies worldwide and because of that, we need to have a variety of certifications. Below are the certifications we can provide upon request, and some information about each one.  If your company needs a certification beyond what is listed, please do not hesitate to ask us!

 

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that we are fully in compliance with the requirements of Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 lead-free products.

*This landmark consumer product safety law amended CPSA in 2008 and provided CPSC with significant new regulatory and enforcement tools as part of amending and enhancing several CPSC statutes, including the Consumer Product Safety Act. The CPSIA included provisions addressing, among other things, lead, phthalates, toy safety, durable infant or toddler products, third-party testing and certification, tracking labels, imports, ATVs, civil and criminal penalties and SaferProducts.gov, a publically-searchable database of reports of harm. The CPSIA also repealed a challenging agency funding limitation and increased the number of authorized CPSC commissioners from three to five.*

 

SAM Registered

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that our company is registered with SAM, DUNS#, CAGE CODE etc for business with the U.S. Government. SAM is the System for Award Management which is an official website of the U.S. government.

 

Conflict Minerals Compliance

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that our materials and our products are fully in compliance with the requirements of Conflict minerals.

*On August 22, 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted a new rule and form, as mandated by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”), to require companies to publicly disclose their use of conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (together with the DRC, “Covered Countries”). The new rule takes effect on November 13, 2012.*

 

Safety Data Sheet (SDS)

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that our policies and procedures are in compliance with the requirements of our Safety Data Policy and Procedures.

*The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) (29 CFR 1910.1200(g)), revised in 2012, requires that the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) for each hazardous chemical to downstream users to communicate information on these hazards. The information contained in the SDS is largely the same as the MSDS, except now the SDSs are required to be presented in a consistent user-friendly, 16-section format. This brief provides guidance to help workers who handle hazardous chemicals to become familiar with the format and understand the contents of the SDSs.*

 

RoHS 2 Directive Compliance

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that our materials and our products are fully in compliance with the requirements of European Union RoHS 2 Directive 2011/65/EU.

*RoHS 2 currently restricts 10 hazardous substances in EEE and they are included in the Annex II of the Directive 2011/65/EU.

StatusSubstances and Limits
Current Restrictions
  • Cadmium(Cd): 0.01%
  • Mercury: 0.1%
  • Lead(Pb) : 0.1%
  • Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) : 0.1%
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB): 0.1 %;
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE): 0.1 %
  • Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP): 0.1% (added in 2015);
  • Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP): 0.1% (added in 2015);
  • Dibutyl phthalate (DBP): 0.1% (added in 2015);
  • Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP): 0.1% (added in 2015).

It shall be noted that above maximum concentration values apply to each homogeneous material rather than a product or a part itself. A homogeneous material means material of uniform composition throughout that cannot be mechanically separated into different materials. Some companies have set stricter limits than above regulatory limits. For example, Apple’s limit for Cadmium in homogeneous material is 0.005%.*

 

ISO Compliance

Plan Tech, Inc. has established and applies for a quality system for manufacture of Cast Polyurethane Wheels, Rollers, and Custom Urethane Parts. The material in this order was processed according to raw material supplier specifications to meet your requirements.

*ISO creates documents that provide requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.*

 

ASTM Testing Procedures

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that all of our Polyurethane parts are inspected and tested per ASTM standards such as Durometer, Tear Strength etc.

*REACH applies to all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes but also in our day-to-day lives, for example in cleaning products, paints as well as in articles such as clothes, furniture and electrical appliances. Therefore, the regulation has an impact on most companies across the EU. REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It entered into force on 1 June 2007.*

These standards specify security controls for contractor information systems that handle Controlled Defense Information (CDI) — at both the contractor and subcontractor levels. These security controls are based on National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, detailed in NIST publication 800-171. DFARS requires non-federal organizations who render services to the DoD or host DoD applications to complete a CDI assessment and report findings to the DoD Chief Information Officer within 30 days of any DoD contract.*

 

Material Test Report (MTR)

Plan Tech, Inc. certifies that our products are certified with a full MTR upon request.
