RoHS CompliantWorldwide concerns over health and environmental risks associated with the use of certain environmentally-sensitive materials in electronic products has led the European Union to enact the Directive on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS), to restrict the use of cadmium, hexavalent chromium, lead, mercury and certain halogenated flame retardants (PBBs and PBDEs) in electronic products. The RoHS directive took effect in the European Union July 1, 2006.

RoHS 1 Directive (2002/95/EC):
WTI products placed on the market from July 1st, 2006, and within scope, will be compliant to the RoHS 1 Directive (2002/95/EC.)

RoHS 2 Directive (2011/65/EU):
WTI products placed on the market from January 2nd, 2013, and within scope, will be compliant to the RoHS 2 Directive (2011/65/EU.) WTI will be marking RoHS compliant products and/or packaging with the CE mark. Declarations of Conformity will be available for products.

RoHS 3 Directive (2017/863/EU):
WTI products placed on the market from June 1st, 2018, and within scope, will be compliant to the RoHS 3 Directive (2017/863/EU.) WTI will be marking RoHS compliant products and/or packaging with the CE mark. Declarations of Conformity will be available for products.

To comply with the RoHS directive, WTI has purchased RoHS compliant parts and has made a substantial investment in new production equipment. Western Telematic now has a "Lead Free" manufacturing process. WTI has not used hexavalent chromium, PBBs, PBDEs, cadmium or mercury in any products since 1999.
