RoHS/WEEE Compliance Statement
RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC)
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive was passed into law by the European Union (E.U.). It affects manufacturers, sellers, distributors and recyclers of electrical and electronic equipment containing lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chrome, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE). After July 1, 2006 the use of these materials will be banned in new products sold in Europe. The RoHS Directive complements the WEEE Directive.
Hypertec is committed to protecting people and the environment and we are working on identifying any materials used in our processes that could pose a potential hazard to our employees, customers or the environment.
In 2003, Hypertec began the process of converting all of its products to be built without any of the banned materials. The qualification of RoHS-compliant components supplied by our vendors and the implementation of new manufacturing processes related to this Directive was undertaken in 2004 and 2005. If you have questions regarding the RoHS compliance of our products, please contact your distributor or reseller.
All of Hypertec’s and Keytool's products and their packaging materials sold worldwide were fully RoHS-compliant by July 1, 2006. An exception to this will be certain legacy products for which RoHS-compliant components are unavailable from the suppliers. The upgrade of such products are not governed by RoHS legislation.
We are often asked for our advice on a variety of IT-related problems, and have put together this selection of documents to cover these topics and more. If your query isn't answered here then check out our FAQs page, or contact your Hypertec Account Team.
