RoHS( Lead- Pb free) Compliance Advisory and Plan
On January 23, 2003, the European community released Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of use of hazardous substances (RoHS) in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment. This directive was developed to limit the use of key hazardous materials within electrical and electronic products during manufacture, based on information collected regarding collection, treatment, recycling and disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) as set out in Directive 2002/96/EC of 27 January 2003. The European community established the RoHS Directive to aid the WEEE Directive by restricting the use of, and by defining environmentally tolerable levels of Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr 6+), Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) that may be present in electrical and electronic components. Directive 2002/95/EC mandated that all member states must be RoHS compliant by July 1, 2006.
