In an effort to improve the health of our environment, the European Union introduced the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive in 2002. RoHS was modified in 2011 to include medical devices (with the exception of active implantable devices; although, it is presumed that active implantable devices will be included in the RoHS Directive in the future). The initiative behind RoHS is to eliminate the following harmful substances which are commonly found in electronic equipment:
- Hexavalent chromium
- Polybrominated biphenyls
- Polybrominated diphenyl ether
DSI is proud to announce that our products meet the requirements of the RoHS 2 directive (2011/65/EU).
