Since 1995, Assembling Dependable Engineering, Design, & Manufacturing Relationships


The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union have adopted legislation restricting or banning certain substances in the electrical and electronic equipment. The RoHS Directive states that: "Member States shall ensure that from 1 July, 2006, new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)."

This directive is completed by a second directive concerning the management of waste of electrical and electronic equipment.

Optima Technology Associates, products do not contain Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, Poly-brominated Biphenyls (PBB), or Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) as either intentionally added ingredients or as unintended impurities in concentrations exceeding EU regulatory limits, as specified by customer requirements.
