Approach to complying with EU RoHS Directive
Our approach to complying with EU RoHS Directive is explained below.
In June, 2015, Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2015/863 was published, and four kinds of phthalates were newly added to the specified hazardous substances (lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, cadmium, PBB and PBDE) of EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.
Our products are industrial instruments listed in Category 9 “Monitoring and control instruments including industrial monitoring and control instruments” and must comply with this directive if they are launched in Europe after the directive is put into operation.
We will take measures to comply with this directive by the appointed time.
