This program protects controlled Unclassified Militarily Critical Technical Data (MCTD) and technology, but allows certified Canadian and U.S. companies to have access to the data.

RoHS refers to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances. The European Union (EU) instituted RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, which banned ten substances lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) from being used in the manufacturing process.

To meet NIST SP 800-171 standards, Allied Wire and Cable established a separate data environment conforming to DFARS 252.204-7012 standards.

Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act defines and regulates “conflict minerals”-- tantalum, tungsten, tin, and gold originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Revenue made from these materials indirectly, and directly, benefits armed groups responsible for human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo and surrounding countries.
The wire and cable industry is impacted by this human rights crisis because many of these materials are used in 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. If your company requires information regarding conflict minerals compliance, we will be happy to reach out to our manufacturers.
At Allied Wire and Cable, our efforts to be more environmentally sustainable don’t end with industry compliances. We are following green initiatives in our offices and warehouses as well. From going paper-free, recycling more, and using energy efficient lighting, we are taking big steps to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize landfill waste.
