RoHS is an EU directive for the restriction of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
The RoHS-II regulation did become effective by January, 2nd 2013. The main differences between RoHS and RoHS-II regulations are:
- The scope of the directive was enlarged.
- CE compliance declarations must include the RoHS-II regulation.
- The substance-bans, declared by RoHS, have been regarded by all Distec-products since the regulation has taken effect. Therefore the enlarged scope of the RoHS II- regulation is irrelevant to Distec and no action must be taken.
- Distec has adapted the CE compliance declarations of all end products when the RoHS-II regulation came into effect and provides them for customer use.
Distec GmbH hereby confirms that, according to current knowledge, all products sold by Distec GmbH comply with the 2011/65/EU regulation.
These products meet the current requirements of the RoHS regulation for all 7 designated materials (maximum 0.1% of the weight in homogeneous material for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE), deca-BDE and max. 0.01% of the weight for cadmium).
