5 of 6 RoHS/ELV Compliant

These products comply with the ELV Directive but do NOT comply with the RoHS Directive. However, these products may be suitable for use in RoHS applications where there is a product based exemption for lead in solders, such as the server, storage, or network infrastructure exemption.

Not Reviewed for RoHS/ELV Compliance

These products have not yet been reviewed for RoHS/ELV compliance.

Not in Scope RoHS, ELV, or RoHS/ELV

These typically would be products that are not electrical or electronic in nature nor would be used in electrical/electronic equipment covered by these Directives.
