Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Compliance
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 (RoHS recast).
Conscious of the need to protect the global environment, our policy is to operate in accordance with sound environmental management practices and to achieve improved environmental outcomes for customers, end-users of our products and society in general.
As the EU RoHS Directive specifies Electrical and Electronic Equipment only, the majority of SGE product is outside scope. With the publication of RoHS recast in July 2011 please refer to the following response.
Where compliance is indicated on the relevant certificate, the product family has been determined to have levels of the restricted substances at or below the maximum concentration values (MCV) as follows:
- Lead (Pb) = 1000ppm or 0.1% by weight
- Mercury (Hg) = 1000ppm or 0.1% by weight
- Hexavalent Chromium VI (Cr VI) = 1000ppm or 0.1% by weight
- Cadmium (Cd) = 100ppm or 0.01% by weight
- Polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) = 1000ppm or 0.1% by weight
- Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) = 1000ppm or 0.1% by weight
RoHS compliance is based on information provided by component suppliers including product technical documentation (e.g. Safety Data Sheets). Compliance is also determined from product family testing by an independent externally accredited laboratory where appropriate. Ongoing screening of incoming supplier material or testing of each individual product supplied is neither feasible nor practical.
Any packaging that is discarded after purchase of the product is excluded from the compliance certificate.

Customer Option 2) Specific Products and/or Material Composition Requests:
In the event a customer requires a product specific, material composition declaration or test report for any individual substance(s) within or outside the scope of the EU RoHS Directive, the estimated lead time and associated cost of this compliance service (including where applicable independent externally accredited laboratory testing fees) will be advised.
All reasonable care has been exercised in developing our response to the EU RoHS Directive. No warranty (expressed or implied) is offered in connection with these RoHS certifications. Customers and product end-users should consider the suitability of this certification for their particular requirements and the RoHS and environmental regulations relevant to their market.
