Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC is short for the Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, this directive restricts (with exceptions) the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste.

Cross Company is aware of various RoHS compliance mandates and therefore has gathered information concerning the components that it resells to assist its customers in determining whether such components are in compliance with the mandate.

Cross Company, however, is an independent distributor and therefore does not manufacture any of the components that it offers for sale. The Original Component Manufacturer (OCM) is the only source that can provide final information as to whether a specific component is RoHS compliant.

Cross Company does not introduce any chemicals or materials in its processes that change the RoHS status of the components that it sells.

Any information provided by Cross Company concerning the RoHS status of a component has been provided based upon our best effort to provide accurate information obtained from the manufacturer's website, data sheet, or other information provided by the manufacturer.

Cross Company cannot be held responsible for information that it or its employees provide concerning the RoHS status of a component, or for errors or omissions, even if due to employee error or negligence.
