EU RoHS Compliance

Compliant

These products comply with the substance restrictions of the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2). The RoHS2 Directive requires that certain electrical and electronic equipment products do not contain mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB, PBDE, and lead above defined thresholds. Products indicated as 'Compliant' do not contain any of these substances above the prohibition thresholds. Finished electrical and electronic equipment products will be CE marked as required by the Directive. Components may not be CE marked.

 

Compliant with Exemptions
These products comply with the substance restrictions of the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2). The RoHS2 Directive requires that certain electrical and electronic equipment products do not contain mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB, PBDE, and lead above defined thresholds. Products indicated as 'Compliant with Exemptions' contain one or more of these substances above the prohibition thresholds, but are compliant by claiming one or more valid exemptions. Finished electrical and electronic equipment products will be CE marked as required by the Directive. Components may not be CE marked.

 

Not Compliant
These products DO NOT comply with the substance restrictions of the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EC (RoHS2). Products indicated as 'Not Compliant' contain one or more restricted substances above the prohibition thresholds. Consequently, these products should NOT be used in any application requiring RoHS2 compliance. 

 

Out of Scope

These are products that TE Connectivity considers to be out of scope for the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2). Products indicated as 'Out of Scope' typically are not electrical or electronic in nature, nor would be used in electrical/electronic equipment covered by this Directive. Customers should verify this assessment prior to use.

 

Not Yet Reviewed

These products have not yet been reviewed for compliance with the Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2).

EU ELV Compliance

Compliant

These products comply with the substance restrictions of the End of Live Vehicles Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV). The ELV Directive requires that materials and components of vehicles do not contain mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and lead above defined thresholds. Products indicated as 'Compliant' do not contain any of these substances above the prohibition thresholds.

 

Compliant with Exemptions

These products comply with the substance restrictions of the End of Life Vehicles Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV). The ELV Directive requires that materials and components of vehicles do not contain mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and lead above defined thresholds. Products indicated as ' Compliant with Exemptions' contain one or more of these substances above the prohibition thresholds, but are compliant by claiming one or more valid exemptions.

 

Not Compliant

These products DO NOT comply with the substance restrictions of the End of Life Vehicles Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV). Products indicated as 'Not Compliant' contain one or more restricted substances above the prohibition thresholds. Consequently, these products should NOT be used in any application requiring ELV compliance.

 

Out of Scope

These are products that TE Connectivity considers to be out of scope for the End of Life Vehicles Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV). Products indicated as 'Out of Scope' typically are not materials or components of vehicles. Customers should verify this assessment prior to use.

 

Not Yet Reviewed

These products have not yet been reviewed for compliance with the End of Life Vehicles Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV).

China RoHS

China RoHS - Environmental Friendly Use Period (EFUP) Symbol

 

EFUP E (see green label below): No hazardous material exists over the threshold of GB/T 26572-2011 standard - China's Requirements for Concentration Limits for Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products. 

 

EFUP 10 (see orange label below): Hazardous material exists over the threshold of GB/T 26572-2011. The number shown in the center of the symbol indicates the Environmental Friendly Use Period as defined by SJ/T 11364-2014 – China's Marking for the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products.

 

NoteEFUP 10 is an example only. EFUP values (shown in the center of the symbol) may vary by product family/part.
