The European Commission, on January 27, 2003 entered into force the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, “Directive 2002/95/EC”, which restricts certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products. Effective July 1, 2006, RoHS directed Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, and Brominated Flame-Retardants – PBB & PBDE, be banned from electrical and electronic products sold in Europe.
The Gund Company offers RoHS compliant materials. At the customer's request, we will supply certificates of compliance based on our testing and/or raw material source certificates of compliance. Under specific circumstances, TGC can offer a 3rd party independent lab test confirming RoHS compliance at a nominal cost.
We have received RoHS compliance commitments from all of our primary vendors of raw materials. Based on these compliance commitments, our internal proprietary formulations, and/or certicates of compliance from our raw material sources, The Gund Company has confirmed our compliance with the RoHS for every material that we supply to customers that have requested such certification.
Thank you for your business and the opportunity to serve your company.
