Xmultiple is committed to working with the International Community towards manufacturing with non-toxic materials in our connectors. In the manufacturing of our component modules we are eliminating Cadmium, Lead and Halogen. Xmultiple is continuously improving and minimizing our environmental footprint.

RoHS 2 (formally known as directive 2011/65/EU), which is the current version, restricts the amount of six substances (the first six on the list below) to trace amounts in Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE). It replaced the original RoHS 1 legislature (2002/95/EC), which was released in 2002, by updating the scope and applicable types of products.

RoHS 3 was been announced, which expands the list of prohibited substances from six to ten by adding four new types of phthalates. This directive has already been adopted by the EU legislature, and member states have until December 2016 to inform suppliers how they are required to meet the standards of RoHS 3. Suppliers then have until the 22nd of July 2019 to meet these provisions.

The RoHS-3 Substance list is as follows:

1. Lead (0.1 %)
2. Mercury (0.1 %)
3. Cadmium (0.01 %)
4. Hexavalent chromium (0.1 %)
5. Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) (0.1 %)
6. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) (0.1 %)
7, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) (0.1 %)
8. Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) (0.1 %)
9. Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) (0.1 %)
10. Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) (0.1 %)

RoHS Information for Xmultiple products is listed below.

Xmultiple provides EU and China RoHS status for every part number on our product sheets.

Xmultiple displays the RoHS status at the top of all our product sheets.

The purpose of RoHS is to reduce the influence of these substances on the ecosystem and to contribute to the overall preservation of the global environment. Companies throughout the electronics industry, either through ISO or through their own initiatives, are implementing programs intended to limit and eliminate certain substances used in the manufacture of semiconductor devices. Xmultiple has implemented RoHS programs and offer RoHS on all of our connectors.

Exception: Xmultiple devices used in high temperature leaded solder for chip attach allowable under RoHS exemption 7A until 2019 per Directive 2016/774/EU as of 18 May 2016 amending Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC. Exemption 7a is Lead in high melting temperature type solders (i.e. lead- based alloys containing 85 % by weight or more lead).

The restriction of DEHP, BBP, DBP and DIBP shall not apply to cables or spare parts for the repair, the reuse, the updating of functionalities or upgrading of capacity of EEE placed on the market before 22 July 2019.

China RoHS and Xmultiple's Compliance Policy?

China RoHS has two distinct phases in its directive which are listed below.

1. China RoHS Phase One requires labeling of end item Electronic Information Products (EIPs) with an Environmental Protection Use Period (EPUP). The China RoHS directive has a hazardous material chart showing the six substances registered which should not be above the threshold values. The China RoHS requirement went into effect for all end items EIP manufactured after March 1, 2007.

2. China RoHS Phase Two has a requirement of maximum concentration values for all products that are identified. China has not release the catalog of the levels or concentrations. Xmultiple will comply as the China RoHS list is made available.

The current China RoHS requirement is listed in this Xmultiple China RoHS statement only to provide information. Xmultiple will publish reports and label our products for the presence of the six hazardous substances if after the list is published we are above the threshold values. Chinese is expected to publish their catalogs within twelve months. Therefore, please note there is no current restrictions on the sale of connectors and components products exceed these limits.
