GAI-Tronics has added a RoHS compliant version of the VoIP Clean Phone® to its portfolio. This has been developed to gain CE approval for use in the UK and Europe.
The Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) Directive (2011/65/EU) was transposed into UK law on 2 January 2013.
This legislation bans the placing on the EU market of new EEE containing more than the agreed levels of:
• lead (Pb)
• cadmium (Cd)
• mercury (Hg)
• hexavalent chromium (Cr6+)
• polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
• polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)
