Directive 2011/65/EU on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS 2) came into force throughout the European Community on 2nd January 2013. The purpose of this directive is to restrict the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) within electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), thereby contributing to the protection of human health and the environment.
RoHS 2 is a European Union (EU) Directive, however, manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment outside Europe must also abide by this legislation if the equipment they produce is ultimately imported into an EU member state.
Embedded Artists AB is fully compliant with this directive. Unless otherwise stated, all products that we supply are RoHS 2 compliant. The CE mark is the only mark on our products which attests the conformity of the product with the requirements of RoHS 2.
