Technical Manufacturing Corporation will fully comply with the Restriction on Hazardous Substance (RoHS) Directive 2003/95/EC as defined by the European Union for those customers required to adhere to the directive and observe the applicable hazardous substance restrictions for electrical and electronic equipment.

We maintain a lead-free manufacturing process for customers who require it. We have eliminated to the best of our knowledge the use of all six hazardous substances as specified by the directive with the allowed maximum concentration as permitted including Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr+6), Polybrominated Biphenyl (PBB) and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE) from our lead-free manufacturing process to the fullest extent possible. We also employ x-ray fluorescence (XRF) as a nondestructive inspection method to verify conformance of all materials to the directive and can provide customers with a Positive Material Identification (PMI) report upon request.

Technical Manufacturing Corporation does and will continue unless otherwise instructed to employ traditional electronics manufacturing processes up to and after July of 2006 that may or may not include one or more of the hazardous substances identified by the directive for use by specific industries, companies or products that are exempted from the directive. It is the ultimate responsibility of the customer to determine if the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive is applicable to them and to fully review the specifications and requirements of their products that are manufactured by us to ensure conformance to the directive.

The difference between the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) directive as enacted by the European Community Regulation and the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (ROHS) is that REACH requires the upstream communication of Substances of Very High Concern by a supplier with the customer while ROHS requires the elimination of six specific hazardous substances in the manufacturing process.

Please contact us with any questions or comments concerning our conformance to the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive.
