Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), adopted in February 2003 by the European Union, is intended to reduce the effect of hazardous waste created by electronic products on the environment. The directive took effect on July 1st, 2006, and places clear restrictions on the use of six hazardous materials used in the manufacture of electronic and electrical components.
While each European Union member state has adopted its own enforcement and implementation policies using the directive as a guideline, the six substances now restricted are listed across-the-board as lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium VI, and PBB and PBDE, both of which are used as flame retardants in some plastics.
All Quilter Products meet the requirements of European Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Additionally, all Quilter products are China RoHS, Korea RoHs and Taiwan RoHS compliant.
