Medical Devices Directive - Hazardous Substances

EU. Hazardous Substances for Purposes of Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC, 12 July 1993, amended by Directive 2007/47/EC, 21 September 2007

This list contains hazardous substances in accordance with the Medical Devices Directive's (MDD) design and construction requirements pursuant to Annex I, Part II (7) & (8) (i.e., chemical, physical and biological properties; and infection and microbial contamination). Specifically, the non-exhaustive database is derived from: Table 3 of Annex VI to CLP, REACH Candidate List of SVHCs, and Directive 2000/54/EC's Annex III (Biological Agents list). Please note that Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices has repealed Directive 93/42/EEC and begun to apply from 26 May 2021. Nevertheless, Article 120 of the Regulation provides for a transitional period allowing medical devices, under specified conditions (e.g., placed on the market prior to 26 May 2021), to continue to comply with the Directive. In accordance with the fourth paragraph of Article 120, this period ends 26 May 2025.

Glass, oxide, chemicals
This category encompasses the various chemical substances manufactured in the production of inorganic glasses. For purposes of this category, 'glass' is defined as an amorfous, inorganic, transparent, translucent or opaque material traditionally formed by fusion of sources of silica with a flux, such as an alkali-metal carbonate, boron oxide, etc. and a stabilizer, into a mass which is cooled to a rigid condition without crystallization in the case of transparent or liquid-phase separated glass or with controlled crystallization in the case of glass-ceramics. The category consists of the various chemical substances, other than by-products or impurities, which are formed during the production of various glasses and concurrently incorporated into a glass mixture. All glasses contain one or more of these substances, but few, if any, contain all of them. The elements listed below are principally present as components of oxide systems but some may also be present as halides or chalcogenides, in multiple oxidation states, or in more complex compounds. Trace amounts of other oxides or chemical compounds may be present. Oxides of the first seven elements listed* comprise more than 95 percent, by weight, of the glass produced. @Aluminium*@Lead@Boron*@Lithium@Calcium*@Manganese@Magnesium*@Molybdenum@Potassium*@Neodymium@Silicon*@Nickel@Sodium*@Niobium@Antimony@Nitrogen@Arsenic@Phosphorus@Barium@Praseodymium@Bismuth@Rubidium@Cadmium@Selenium@Carbon@Silver@Cerium@Strontium@Cesium@Sulfur@Chromium@Tellurium@Cobalt@Tin@Copper@Titanium@Germanium@Tungsten@Gold@Uranium@Holmium@Vanadium@Iron@Zinc@Lanthanum@Zirconium
