Atlas Copco's Prohibited and Declarable Lists

Atlas Copco maintains lists of substances that are either prohibited or restricted due to their potential negative impact on health or the environment. Compliance with these lists is part of our business partner criteria for evaluating business partners. The substances of concern are controlled through our Atlas Copco Prohibited and Declarable list. 

The distinction is made between ProhibitedPhase-out and Declarable substances:

  • Prohibited substances must not be included unless clearly exempted in the Prohibited and Declarable List.
  • Phase-out substances will soon be included in the Prohibited List and must be phased out.
  • Declarable substances must be reported. Avoiding all substances on the Atlas Copco Prohibited List and correctly informing about all declarable substances is part of compliance with the business partner compliance criteria.

 

Scope:

  • Products sold by Atlas Copco
  • Items delivered to Atlas Copco by any business partners such as suppliers, contractors, and subcontractor
  • Production processes outsourced by Atlas Copco

 

Business partners must check their own compliance using the lists below and take the following actions:

All substances in the Prohibited List and Declarable List are also contained in a combined list with different filters to make compliance easier for suppliers. We expect our suppliers to adhere to these lists, as well as to any applicable national legislation.
