DIRECTIVE 2002/95/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL OF 27. January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment
better known as Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
01. July 2006
Extract from Article 4 Paragraph 1
“The member states shall ensure that after 01.July 2006, newly marketed items of electrical and electronic equipment shall not contain any lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybromide biphenyl (PBB) or polybromide diphenyl ether (PBDE).”
ID Infrastructure is fully committed to supporting both the EC2002/95/EC Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) and EC2002/96/EC Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives. All of ID Infrastructure products are compliant to the European Directive EU2002/95/EC (RoHS) inclusive of the latest amendments till May 2009 and bear the RoHS marking.
When ID Infrastructure declares any product as RoHS compliant, it would apply to the following substances as listed in the EU directive 2002/95/EC inclusive of the latest amendments till May 2009:
|Substance||RoHS Limity by Weight||RoHS Limity by % (PPM)|
|Lead (PB)||1000mg/kg||0.1% (1000 PPM)|
|Mercury (Hg)||1000mg/kg||0.1% (1000 PPM)|
|Hexavalent Chromium (CR VI)||1000mg/kg||0.1% (1000 PPM)|
|Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)||1000mg/kg||0.1% (1000 PPM)|
|Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)||1000mg/kg||0.1% (1000 PPM)|
|Cadmium (CD)||100mg/kg||0.01% (100 PPM)|
The situation today is that the electronics industry is providing information on the listed substances only. ID Infrastructure is not currently able to meet any additional requirements regarding substances which are not part of the EU directive 2002/95/EC.
