Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive


By July 2006, all manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment sold in Europe must comply with the EU's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive mandating the reduction of six hazardous substances.

RoHS restricts a total of six substances - lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE. To be truly compliant with this legislation, the presence of each of these substances must be reduced below their maximum concentration values (MCV).

MCE's understanding of RoHS compliance is taken from the DTI draft RoHS guidance notes of July 2004:

"For the purposes of RoHS regulations, a maximum concentration value of up to 0.1% by weight in homogenous materials for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE and of up to 0.01% by weight in homogenous materials for cadmium will be permitted in the manufacture of new EEE“.

MCE is compliant with the RoHS Directive in all products it manufactures and sells, since none of the products contain substances in excess of MCV values.
