RoHS Compliance – General Statement

EU Directive 2011/65/EU restricts the use of the six substances below in the manufacture of specified types of electrical equipment.

Whilst this restriction does not legally apply to components, it is recognised that the component ‘compliance’ is relevant to the manufacturer and many customers.

The Express Transformers & Controls (2015) Limited definition of RoHS Compliance:

  • The product does not contain any of the restricted substances in concentrations and applications banned by the Directive
  • And for components the product is capable of being worked on at the higher temperatures required by lead-free solder

 

The restricted substances and the maximum allowed concentrations in the homogenous material are, by weight:

Substance

Concentration

Lead

0.1%

Mercury

0.1%

PBB (Polybrominated Biphenyls)

0.1%

PBDE (Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers)

0.1%

Hexavalent Chromium

0.1%

Cadmium

0.01%

 

The suppliers of the components used in the manufacture of the products produced by the company have informed Express Transformers & Controls (2015) Limited that the components used are ‘RoHS Compliant’. Express Transformers & Controls (2015) Ltd have taken all reasonable steps to confirm these statements.

The manufacturing process used in the production of the products supplied by Express Transformers & Controls (2015) Ltd. does not materially affect this statement.
