Teledyne LeCroy products are fully compliant with the China RoHS 1 requirements that went into effect on 1 March 2007 as well as China RoHS 2 requirements that went into effect on July 1, 2016.
China RoHS 2 requires manufacturers to restrict the use of the hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products and disclose hazardous substances contained in their products in accordance with the standards SJ/T 11364-2014 (Marking for the Restricted Use of Hazardous Substances in Electronic and Electrical Products) and GB/T 26572-2011 (Requirements on concentration limits for certain restricted substances in electrical and electronic products). All products listed in the "China RoHS compliance management catalogue" that are manufactured or imported after November 01, 2019, must comply with these Implementation Guidelines.
China RoHS 2 restricts the use of lead (Pb) and its compounds, mercury (Hg) and its compounds, cadmium (Cd) and its compounds, hexavalent chromium (Cr+6) compounds, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). China RoHS 2’s restrictions on the above six hazardous substances align with the European Union 2011/65/EU directive (EU RoHS 2).
In summary, China RoHS 2 requires the following for Teledyne LeCroy products: inclusion of an appropriate Environmental Friendly Use Period (EFUP) label, inclusion of appropriate recycling labeling on packaging materials, and providing detailed RoHS compliance information (substance disclosure table in Chinese and English languages) in our product Manuals.
