Introduction to RoHS
RoHS is the acronym for the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic products. RoHS Directive covers a wide range of products, including not only integrated electrical and electronic products but also individual parts, raw materials and packing cases.
The EU RoHS Directive came into force in 2006 and is the first RoHS Directive. The EU RoHS restricts the use of six hazardous substances, including lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr(+6)) , Poly-brominated Bipheneyls (PPB) or Polybrominated Diohenyl Ethers (PBDE) in electrical and electronic products placed on the EU market.
EU RoHS is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods. It is also similar to the End of Life Vehicles (ELV) regulation, which prohibits the use of these 6 hazardous substances in vehicles sold after July 2003.
About Aurora & RoHS
In 2005 we identified all of the existing products in our range that would be affected by RoHs as well as taking into account all the new products to be introduced into our product ranges. Since then we have been collecting compliance data from all our component suppliers. Our continued analysis of our products has enabled us to easily incorporate the recast directive identified as ROHS 2. All our CE marked products are supported and covered.
As you browse products on this website, you will see our compliant, exempt and under investigation symbols.
Quality, Service Assurance
Our continued commitment & passion to provide a quality service and maintain high standards was critical in us attaining ISO 9001:2008 accreditation from the British Standards Institute.
