RoHS Information

 

What Is RoHS?

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), also commonly referred to as the “lead-free” directive, restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. Adopted in February 2003 by the European Union, the RoHS directive takes effect on July 1, 2006. While the RoHS directive is not a law, it is a serious attempt to control the amount of toxic waste that finds its way into our environment.

RoHS restricts the use of the following six substances:

  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Cadmium
  • Chromium VI (Also known as hexavalent chromium
  • PBB
  • PBDE
