About RoHS Certification

The European Union has passed legislation on January 1, 2003, to restrict the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).
Specified in Annex II of the Directive are 6 substances, which include lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent chromium Cr(VI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
