RoHS Compliance

RoHS Compliance

On July 1, 2006 the RoHS directive was implemented in the EU and was modified on January 3, 2013 (Directive 2011/65/EU).*
Since February 2006 100% of our products have complied with the RoHS directive.**
With the implementation of the 2007 REACH regulations and the 2008 PFOS regulations, demands on the management of environmental chemicals has gradually become more strict. To prevent the inclusion of environmental chemicals in our products we have created and are currently running a system related to environmental chemicals.
