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.
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.
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
The RoHS-3 Substance list is as follows::
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 %)

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.

RoHS and Xmultiple's Compliance Policy?
China RoHS has two distinct phases in its directive
which are listed below.
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,
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.
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.
