Contemporary Controls Implements RoHS Compliance Plan
The European Union says that Member States shall restrict their use of hazardous substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment. A second directive, WEEE, seeks the prevention of waste electrical and electronic equipment, and in addition, the reuse, recycling, and other forms of recovery of such wastes so as to reduce the disposal of waste.
Contemporary Controls and its other manufacturing sites (in Europe and in China) have developed plans for fully converting to a lead-free process. All new product development efforts will result in a lead-free product.
Stasiek says our customers will be encouraged to review the RoHS Compliant Product Roadmap posted on the companys main website, www.ccontrols.com, to be ensured that a product of interest is scheduled to be converted to lead-free. If not, we will make a recommendation on a possible substitution if practical, says Stasiek.
He adds that questions regarding a specific product should be directed to the sales department. We will do whatever is possible to assist our customers during this transition period, says Stasiek.
