RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances - is a set of European rules that regulate the use of six hazardous materials, most notably lead, in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment. The “RoHS 2 Directive,” officially known as Directive 2011/65/EU, defines the banned compounds and their tolerable levels in products. The familiar “CE” mark on Extron products denotes conformity with applicable EU requirements, including RoHS 2. RoHS and the WEEE Directive, Directive 2002/96/EC, are related in that WEEE limits E-waste and its harmful compounds from entering landfills while RoHS limits those compounds at the point of manufacture.
