RoHS and REACH Declaration
The European Union’s RoHS directive 2011/65/EU aims to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances used in electrical and electronic equipment. Manufactures, importers, and suppliers of non-food products are obliged to follow directive 2011/65/EU in order to obtain EU conformity and CE-marking of produced products.

REACH regulation (EC) no 1907/2006 for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals, requires all actors in the supply chain to communicate information concerning the use of certain chemicals to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment. In particular, organisations that manufacture or import articles containing Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) have compliance obligations.

Conflict Minerals Reporting
The Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI), aims to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its surrounding countries, which is partially financed by the exploitation and trade of conflict minerals such as tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold. We require all relevant suppliers to source 100% of their conflict minerals from smelters whose due diligence practices have been validated by an independent third-party audit program, such as the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process, and we request the use of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) to provide smelter information.
