Why Should I Care About RoHS and Lead-Free Initiatives?

What is RoHS?

RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. It is a directive that became European law in 2003 in an attempt to prevent hazardous materials from entering landfill sites. This directive (EU Directive 2002/95/EC) places a restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical or electronic equipment sold or used in the European Union (EU) after July 1, 2006 with some exemptions. These substances are lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. Covered electrical and electronic equipment includes:

RoHS and Lead-Free

API EMS took a pro-active approach to support this initiative by implementing a strategy to help our customers cope with the many changes brought on by RoHS and similar global directives. You can rely on API EMS to help you comply through the manufacturing of lead free assemblies or converting your legacy designs to lead free ones.
