Declaration of REACH Substances of Very High Concern

Regulation No 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) entered into force on June 1, 2007. The EU REACH Regulation has been brought into UK law as of 1 January 2021 under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The new regime in the UK is known as ‘UK REACH’. Under EU REACH and UK REACH, companies operating in the UK and EU face certain obligations as manufacturers, importers and/or suppliers. One of the key requirements is the duty to communicate information on substances in articles (Article 33).

Article 33: Information for Recipients & Customers

Article 33 of REACH requires suppliers to inform recipients and respond to consumer enquiries if an article contains more than 0.1% (by weight) of a substance of very high concern (SVHC) which is on the SVHC candidate list published by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

In accordance with the requirements of REACH and to allow safe use of the product, JTI hereby informs you of the presence of the following SVHC contained in its Logic Compact product in concentrations above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w).

Substance Lead

CAS no. 7439-92-1

Individual article affected and their application

  • Brass fittings, connectors and circuit board resistors of electronic cigarettes Logic PRO, Logic Curv, Logic LQD, Logic Compact and Logic Original.
  • Brass mouthpiece fittings of electronic cigarette Logic LQD.

The substance is used to improve the electrical conductivity, the corrosion resistance and the manufacturability of the material.

Safe use information

  • No exposure to the substance is expected due to its inclusion within an alloy brass, and the presence of a plating layer covering the parts concerned.
  • In accordance with the European WEEE Directive Logic Devices should not be disposed of with other household waste at the end of their working life. Please see WEEE instructions supplied with the product on correct disposal channels.

Responsible disposal of your product

Please do not dispose of your Logic device in your household waste at the end of its working life. It contains electronic and battery components and should be disposed of as electronic waste. If electronic waste ends up in landfill, it can cause harm to the environment.

There are three ways you can dispose of your product:

1. You can recycle old electronics at your local household waste recycling centre.
2. Your local authority may offer a dedicated kerbside collection service. It is best to check with them to confirm or use the Waste Resources and Action Programme (WRAP) search tool.
3. When you buy an electronic product from us, we will take back your old one for responsible disposal. You can bring your old device, along with proof of purchase of your new product, to any of our Ploom Lounges or Pop-up stores for disposal. Please note we cannot accept leaking or disassembled products.

There is no need to remove the battery from the device before you recycle it.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations (WEEE) aim to reduce the amount of waste deposited in landfill sites. Any electrical goods marked with the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol need to be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
