What is RoHS Compliance?
The European Union set forth the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive to establish environmental guidelines and legislation to reduce the presence of six (6) materials deemed hazardous to the environment. To comply, products entering the EU must not have a homogeneous presence of these materials above the following levels by weight percentage:
Lead (Pb) < 0.1%
Mercury (Hg) < 0.1%
Cadmium (Cd) < 0.01%
Hexavalent Chromium (CrVI) < 0.1%
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) < 0.1%
Polybrominated Diphenyl Esters (PBDE) < 0.1%
As of July 2019, certain raw ingredients have been added to the list of restricted chemicals. Some Hapco products contain these restricted ingredients and no longer meet RoHS requirements; however, the majority of our product line still complies. If you require a material certification for a specific Hapco product please contact us.
