Our environmental philosophy
“APTOS Technology is committed to conducting its business in a manner that will preserve and protect our global environment for current and future generations to come”
APTOS Technology continues its responsibility for environmental preservation and protection by committing to be RoHS compliant.
APTOS Technology has developed a corporate RoHS Specification (APTOS Technology RoHS Specification) that sets forth requirements that all suppliers providing parts or materials to APTOS Technology must meet. This RoHS specification is in effect for all materials that are subject to the requirements of the European Unions Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU) amending 2002/95/EC (RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC), Restriction on the use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS).
RoHS was initially concerned with six substances – lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. Additionally, RoHS specified 11 categories of materials for which these restrictions applied. Europe isn’t the only government to restrict these specific substances. In the U.S., the Coalition of Northeastern Governors’ legislation included regulations on lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium.
In 2011, “RoHS 2” came into being as 2011/65/EU and superseded 2002/95/EC. However, the list of chemicals addressed did not change. In fact, the only portion of the legislation that changed was the scope of products that it covered. Still, the amended bill required new documentation stating that 2011/65/EU covered any resins purchased.
That brings us to the current 2015/863, or as it’s better known, “RoHS 3.” The most significant change to this iteration is the restriction of four additional phthalates – specifically, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP). If you’re starting to panic again, keep in mind that there’s still time – this latest amendment pertains to products placed on the market on or after July 22, 2019.
APTOS Technology Letter of Compliance can be found at the following link (Letter of Compliance).
APTOS Technology is committed to meeting or exceeding the requirements of these regulations as they are introduced. APTOS Technology part numbers easily identify RoHS compliance.
For all RoHS part numbers: As a standard, APTOS Technology will add a “-G” at the end of all part numbers that are RoHS compliant. A “V” will also be inserted into the part number ahead of the plating code to ensure that all pin and plating materials meet the RoHS requirements. For High Temperature processing requirements, An “F” will be placed ahead of the “G” to signify a part that is capable of withstanding High Temp processing as set forth in the APTOS Technology RoHS Specifications unless noted.
