RoHS also known as the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (2002/95/EC) is a European Directive restricting the use of specific heavy metals and flame retardants in electrical and electronic equipment.
On July 2011, this directive was effectively updated to what is now known as RoHS Recast or RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU). RoHS Recast redefined specific terminology, extended the scope of RoHS and includes new CE marking and declaration of conformity requirements.
RoHS restrictions apply to homogenous materials, which our films fall under. When incorporated into components of EEE products, our films are also subject to the requirements. Provided we are informed of this requirement prior to purchase, we can confirm compliance and offer certifications traceable to our manufacturers.
