RoHS Compliance

RoHS Compliant

RoHS refers to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances. The European Union (EU) instituted RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, which banned six substances (Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexacalent Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenysis, and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers) from being used in the manufacturing process. The goal of this directive is to protect the environment and reduce exposure related health risks.

Since it's inception, Allied has strived to eliminate these banned substances from our products. Today, over 90% of our products are RoHS Compliant. If you need certification that a product is RoHS compliant, we can provide you with any certification you may need.

 

REACH Compliance

EU REACH

REACH stands for “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances,” and is a European Union directive to remove harmful substances from manufactured products.  Currently, there are 161 substances found on the Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) list.

If you need certification that any product is REACH Compliant, just let us know and we’ll provide you with any certification you need.

Conflict Minerals

Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act defines and regulates “conflict minerals.” Conflict minerals—tantalum, tungsten, tin and gold—originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Their revenue directly or indirectly benefits armed groups responsible for war and human rights violations in the DRC and adjoining countries. Growing international awareness of the human rights crisis in the DRC region has brought about legislative measures which affect members of the wire and cable industry.

Our industry is impacted because these materials, such as tin, are widely used in many wire and cable products. The Dodd-Frank Act doesn’t prohibit the use of conflict minerals, but rather demands transparency in the supply chain. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission requires publicly traded manufacturers to release reports disclosing the sources of the materials in question.

As a privately held company whose main business is distribution, the SEC legislation doesn’t directly affect Allied Wire and Cable. However, if your company requires information regarding conflict minerals compliance, we will be happy to reach out to our manufacturers.
