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%
Currently, all of Hapco’s products are RoHS compliant. We certify that PART’s A, B, and C (if applicable) of Hapco products are considered raw materials in compliance with RoHS 2 Directive 2011/65/ EU, as it applies to EEE applications and non-EEE uses. These raw material parts, either separately or when combined according to Hapco’s literature, do not contain Hazardous Substances in excess of RoHS standards.
