RoHS, REACH and Conflict Minerals Statement
Alluxa Inc. is dedicated to serving you by providing high quality optical filters that meet environmental regulations, including RoHS3 EU Directive 2015/863/EU and subsequent amendments of the European Parliament and of the Council regarding the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and REACH (Registration, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals, European Union Regulation (EC) 1907/2006).
Standard Alluxa products are compliant with the RoHS3 EU Directive 2015/863/EU. These parts are compliant to the legislation having less than 0.1% by weight each of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB, PBDE, DEHP, BBP, DBP and DIBP and 0.01% by weight of cadmium.
Alluxa is committed to working with our customers and shall continue to support products with lead applications for customers with specific needs. Such needs must be specified on the purchase order to ensure requirements are met.
Standard Alluxa products are compliant with regulations EC1907/2006 (REACH) and do not contain Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in excess 0.1% by weight. As a producer of “articles” under the definition of the REACH regulations EC1907/2006, we foresee no registration requirements for the products we supply.
Alluxa is also committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, ethics, and environmental responsibility. On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued the final conflict minerals rule under Section 1502 the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). The Conflict Minerals Rule requires publicly traded companies to report annually the presence of conflict minerals (tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold, or “3TG”) originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”).
Alluxa supports the goal of ending violence, human rights violations and environmental devastation in the Covered Countries. We require our key materials suppliers to provide us with completed conflict minerals declarations using the EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.
