RoHS & Environment

RoHS Compliant
Go Green!

As per directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament there are two approved directives related to the reduction of electrical and electronic waste, namely the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directives. The WEEE Directive aims to regulate the reuse, recycling and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment; the ultimate goal is to prevent the disposal of this waste.

In the RoHS Directive, the use of the aforementioned substances in most electrical and electronic equipment will be banned or severely restricted. The RoHS Directive calls for the elimination of these substances from most electronic equipment starting 1 July 2006. Our products are SGS certified for the RoHS compliant levels of Lead 0.1%, Mercury 0.1%, Cadmium 0.01%, Hexalent Chromium 0.1%, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) 0.1% and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) 0.1%. Since 2015, Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalate (DEHP) 0.1%, Butyl benzyl phthalate (PBP) 0.1%, Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) 0.1% and Di-isobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) 0.1% have been added to the list.

All our products meet the above RoHS compliance limits at a homogenous level.

Recast with new legislation

The initiative was to limit the amount of hazardous chemicals in electronics.

The RoHS 1 directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and became a law in each member state. This directive restricts (with exceptions) the use of ten hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. In addition to the exceptions, there are exclusions for products such as solar panels. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC (now superseded) which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste. In speech, RoHS is often spelled out, or pronounced[citation needed] /rɒs/, /rɒʃ/, /rz/, or /ˈrhɒz/, and refers to the EU standard, unless otherwise qualified.
