Reduction of Hazardous Substances

RoHS2 Directive 2011/65/EU

Metrodata’s products are supplied in accordance with the European Parliament and of the Council decision of 8 June 2011, Directive 2011/65/EU on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS2), which takes effect on 2nd January 2013. Product part numbers and order codes remain unaffected.

The RoHS2 Directive prohibits the sale into the European Union of electronic equipment containing certain amounts of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDEs). Their maximum contents are defined at a maximum concentration value of less than 0.1% by weight in homogenous material. An additional substance, cadmium, is restricted to 0.01% in homogenous material.

We work closely with our component suppliers & sub-contract manufacturers to ensure that all products we place on the EU market complies with RoHS2.
