RoHS

The RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. MISUMI's RoHS compliant components are tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The RoHS mark located in our brochures, catalogs, and/or e-catalogs indicates the product either does not contain the six (6) Restrictive Substances of the European Directive (2011/65/EU), is less than the threshold value or, is included in the applicable exemption.

Note: MISUMI's RoHS mark does not indicate whether the product is CE Compliant or Non-Compliant.
