Restricted Substances Program

Nordson Corporation Restricted Substances Policy

Nordson strives for excellence in the design and manufacture of our products and services.  To that end we work diligently to deliver products to our customers that meet strict global product content requirements. 

Restricted Substance List
The Nordson Restricted Substance List (RSL), which identifies prohibited or declarable substances in all Nordson products, is a key component of this initiative. The current RSL can be found under Quick Links.

The RSL is compiled from the following sources:

EU Directive 2002/95/EC, Restrictions on the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS2) and Amendment Directive EU 2015/863.
EU Regulation 1907/2006, Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH).  
The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.
Other relevant global regulations as determined by Nordson.
Substances determined by Nordson to have justification to be controlled, whether or not there is a legislative requirement.

Supplier Expectations
Our suppliers are key to our restricted substance compliance and continued success. Nordson Corporation requires suppliers to:

Assist Nordson with design of restricted substance compliant products.
Establish restricted substances compliance assurance procedures throughout your company.
Design products using only RSL compliant parts, materials, and processes, including appropriate declarations where necessary.
Create and monitor a RSL compliant supply chain.
Create a chain of objective evidence verifying product conformity.
Manufacture parts and products using RSL conforming processes.
Measure and verify the effectiveness of your restricted substances controls.
Provide material declarations for products delivered to Nordson.

The Nordson Supplier Standard can be found under Quick Links.

Nordson Corporation Supplier Polling
Nordson conducts supplier polling through our Supply Chain Central (SCC) portal.  When a request is made by Nordson, suppliers are expected to enter the portal and provide the requested compliance information, which may include REACH, RoHS, and Conflict Minerals.  The submitted information is reviewed, and any inconsistencies, non-compliances, or other issues are addressed. 
Customer Requests
Requests for compliance information for Nordson products can be sent to your Nordson business contact.  Alternately, you can send your request to, but be sure to identify the Nordson business and location so that your request can be forwarded to the proper group.

Nordson Corporation EU REACH SVHC Disclosure
