BSC Filters's position on RoHS
The European Union's directive 2002/95/EC on the "Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive" (RoHS) controls the use of specified hazardous substances in electronic and electrical equipment sold in Europe from 1st July 2006. The materials specified are lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and certain flame retardants use in plastics: polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
BSC Filters Ltd (BSC Filters), as a producer of Microwave and Radio Frequency components, is committed to complying with the RoHS directive as a minimum standard within environmental policy, and to fully support its customers in their compliance.
BSC Filters do not intend to make any changes to part numbers or package labelling as a result of RoHS: the vast majority of products have not required design modification because they do not contain any of the restricted substances. Those products that have required change have been altered internally and there is no difference in product performance or characteristics.
Some of the applications for BSC Filters products are outside the scope of the RoHS directive. Effective from 1 st November 2005 products supplied by BSC Filters are RoHs compliant unless (a) we have been told that the application is military or (b) the customer specifies the use of solder containing lead. If you have concerns regarding any product or would like further information on BSC Filters and RoHS then please contact us.
