Thomson is committed to supplying products worldwide that meet the requirements of its diverse customer base and comply with all applicable governmental regulations. Effective, July 1, 2006, the European Union has mandated that certain categories of electrical and electronic equipment sold in the European Union must restrict the content of: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and poly-brominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
Thomson has reviewed this directive (“restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment-2002/95/EC”) commonly called RoHS. Although many Thomson products do not directly fall under the RoHS directive, we have summarized the status of RoHS compliance efforts for most of the products manufactured in the tables on the following pages. Some special product listings, in the families listed in Table 1, that contain Customer specific components may be non-compliant, e.g. if a special connector is specified, the connector may be non-compliant.
This list was established through careful review of our current product offering, and the products our customers manufacture that may be impacted by RoHS. By taking this action, Thomson is providing a valuable service to our Customers, by making their compliance easier. If an existing Thomson product you purchase is not listed, please contact your Thomson Sales Engineer to review your specific requirements.
