Eurotech and the RoHS directive 2002/95/EC also known as RoHS (Restriction on the use of certain Hazardous Substances) specifically target the reduction of certain hazardous substances currently used in electrical and electronic equipment, including: Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg) Hexavalent, Chromium (Cr VI), Cadmium (Cd) and Poly brominated flame-retardants (PBB and PBDE). The RoHS directive came into force across Europe on July 1st 2006. From this date on all new electronic and electrical equipment manufactured for resale within Europe must meet the guidelines as set out by the directive, however the directive does reference a list of categories and exemptions to be considered by producers (refer to your local RoHS legislation for details).
Eurotech, Inc. recognizes its obligation within the framework of the Chinese and EU initiatives on the restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) and the EU Directive Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
Our first RoHS device was built in July of 2006, and all new designs are now RoHS by default. Product marking of RoHS boards and numbering scheme is designated in Eurotech ISO procedures. Customers needing non-RoHS products should specifically request them.
