Restriction of hazardous substances (ROHS) logo

 


The EU directive 2002/95 EC relating to the restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) has now been passed into law as from 1st July 2006.

As we assemble lead free printed circuit boards the key part of the directive to us means we can no longer use lead in our PCB assembly process although the directive does cover other substances.

However some exceptions are possible depending upon the industry supplied, say medical or military, so with this in mind we are able to offer PCB assemblies which are lead free or ones that do contain lead as we have effectively two PCB assembly production lines one for each process.

If your requirement is for leaded PCB assemblies we would need written confirmation of your exception prior to assembly of your printed circuit boards.
