REACH : European Regulation for the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals
Chemicals are sometimes mandatory in the composition of a product or to ensure its good functioning. However, certain chemical products are considered to be of very high concern.
The REACH regulation ( Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) implemented on 18 December 2006 lists all substances of very high concern, subject to an authorization or a restriction. These listings are updated every January and June. This regulation aims to enhance the protection of the chemical use on the single market 1.
For all these above mentioned reasons, we control and verify all the substances used for the manufacture of our products based on the REACH regulation criteria.
The list of SVHCs (Substance of Very High Concern) includes chemicals which might cause human health issues and that would be potentially prohibited within the next 5 or 7 years. In order to avoid any supply breakdown, Telenco networks follows very closely the evolutions of this list.
Telenco networks care to offer you healthy products, without dangerous substances in their composition that might harm the health of your technicians. Therefore, we pay close attention to the origin, the composition and the conformity of each one of our products. Also, we carefully select our providers and we make sure that our supply chain follows all the required procedures to guarantee the safety of our products.
1The single market includes European Union, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
The American Act Dodd-Frank
Because we strongly believe that a company’s success cannot be built at the expense of human rights, we are willingly complying to the section 1502 of the Dodd-Franck Act. We systematically check for the presence of conflict minerals in our providers’ products. Conflict minerals include gold, tungsten, tantalum and tin. In case these minerals are absolutely mandatory to the composition of our products, then we make sure their origins are different than the Democratic Republic of Congo and its bordering areas.

Through sport competitions such as trails and marathons, at which they gladly and voluntarily choose to participate, Telenco networks’ employees help raise funds every year for « les enfants de l’Ovale » organization. The aim of this organization is to help disadvantage youngsters from France, Madagascar, Ivory Coast, Mali, Marocco, Nigeria and Senegal.
Telenco networks promotes social inclusion through employment for persons with disabilities, in reintegration or for ancient prisoners. Therefore, we support Establishments and Support Services through Work (in France, medico-social public institutions also known as ESAT’s) which allow these persons to keep contact with society through work. We chose to support local EASTs in order to reduce the carbon impact of transport and to contribute to the development of our territory. Also, we are proud to collaborate with a reintegration workshop. These actions are extremely dear and important for us because they reflects our commitment to society and our aspiration to give everyone a chance.
