MSP Aviation ensures compliance with RoHS (Directive 2002/95/EC) by outsourcing our products to RoHS complaint processing houses.
What is RoHS?
RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive
2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products.
What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
Why is RoHS compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and disposal. At MSP Aviation we take our certifications seriously, from our ISO9001 certification to our RoHS compliance, we pride ourselves on taking a vested interest in our clients and delivering high quality products and services while being environmentally conscious.
Which companies are affected by the RoHS Directive?
Any business that sells applicable electronic products, sub assemblies or components directly to EU countries, or sells to resellers, distributors or integrators that in turn sell products to EU countries, is impacted if they utilize any of the banned materials.
