RoHS Compliance

EDT is committed to its customers in the European Union as well as to a clean and healthy environment. We are therefore phasing out our use of certain hazardous substances targeted by the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive 2002/95/EC.

The RoHS directive limits the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and the halide-containing compounds polybrominated biphenyl and polybrominated diphenyl ether, often used in the manufacture of electronics components. Eliminating these substances means that electronic equipment can be recycled or incinerated without harming the environment or endangering its inhabitants.

Since 2006, EDT has been designing all new products and, depending on customer demand and technical feasibility, redesigning selected existing products to meet RoHS regulations. Products for which RoHS compliance is not feasible may still be sold, subject to market considerations. When relevant, product data sheets and web page descriptions will note RoHS compliance. If you have questions about compliance plans for a specific product, contact us.
