ferroxcube_about_img6 Ferroxcube's RoHS declaration Download

In line with worldwide environmental legislation, FERROXCUBE has taken measures to eliminate certain heavy metals and flame retardants. FERROXCUBE complies with the RoHS regulations, including the DecaBDE restriction. Additionally, FERROXCUBE complies with the perfluoro octane sulfonate restriction (PFOS, 2006/122/EC), which is formally an amendment on the older regulation 76/769/EEC. Some products still have a version with SnPb plating, because certain market sectors and applications are exempt from RoHS regulations, e.g. equipment used in military applications. They are also maintained for customers in non-RoHS countries who don't want to switch.

Ferroxcube approach

In line with worldwide lead-free legislation, FERROXCUBE has introduced lead-free plating on all of our formerly tin/lead containing products. The transition applies to accessories (coil formers for all core ranges & earth clips), wire-wound cores (through-hole & SMD), as well as multilayer suppressors and inductors. In Europe, the directives on Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE, 2012/19/EU) and Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS, 2011/65/EU) required electronic components to be lead-free from 1st of July 2006 onward.

REACH requires producers and importers to register a large category of chemicals and preparations, when they are put on the market in quantities exceeding one metric ton, and it also requires to demonstrate that they are safe to use. This also applies to constituents of products, if they are intentionally released during their normal use or if they are a substance of very high concern (SVHC).
