BaySpec, Inc. RoHS/ Environmental Position Statement
On January 27, 2003, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union (“EU”) adopted Directives on (i) the Restriction of the Use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (“”RoHS Directive” 2002/95/EC).
The prime objectives of the RoHS Directive is to approximate the laws of the Member States of the European Union on the restrictions of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and to contribute to the protection of human health and environmentally sound recovery and disposal of electrical and electronics equipment. The RoHS Directive requires Member States to ensure that, as a general rule, as of July 1, 2006, new electrical and electronics equipment put on the market within the European Union not contain lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, or polybrominated diphenyl ethers.
BaySpec is committed to making sure its products comply with the RoHS Directive. In response to the RoHS Directive, BaySpec had redesigned certain products to remove listed hazardous substances making those products RoHS compliant. BaySpec recognizes that these Directives represent a significant change in material requirements for components and certainly for the telecommunications and electronics industries as a whole.
It is BaySpec’s policy to limit, and to a great extent avoid, the use of hazardous substances in the design and manufacturing of its products. In response to the EU’s Directives, BaySpec has developed and deployed programs to facilitate compliance with the RoHS Directive.
The following products are now RoHS compliant:
- IntelliGuard™ Optical Channel Performance Monitors
- WaveCapture™ FBG Integration Analyzers
- SuperGamut™ UV, Visible and NIR Spectrometers
- Nunavut™ Camera/Detectors
- DeepView™ Spectral Domain OCT Spectral Engines
