Safety and Standards


What is RoHS?
The member states of the European Union issued a law,  referred to as Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2002/95/EU,  restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment manufactured and/or sold within the EU.   This Directive requires that all Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) sold within the EU be free of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenly ethers (PBDE).

The goal of this Directive is to protect human health, animal health and the environment from the risks associated with these substances.
