IDEC RoHS Compliance | APAC

Our commitment

IDEC carries out environmental protection activities intended to lessen its environmental impact. 
One of those activities is the reduction of the use hazardous substances (Lead, Hexavalent chromium, Mercury, Cadmium, PBB, PBDE, DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP) under the EU RoHS Directive.

Regulated substances

The hazardous substances restricted by the EU RoHS Directive are:

Lead (Pb) and its compound 1000ppm
Mercury (Hg) and its compound 1000ppm
Cadmium (Cd) and its compound 100ppm
Hexavalent chromium (Cr VI) compound 1000ppm
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) 1000ppm
Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) 1000ppm
Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) 1000ppm
Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) 1000ppm
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) 1000ppm
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) 1000ppm


(except for RoHS exemption list)

For more details on the RoHS directives, see the original text of EU RoHS Directive.
DIRECTIVE 2011/65/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment 
COMMISSION DELEGATED DIRECTIVE (EU) 2015/863 of 31 March 2015 amending Annex II to Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the list of restricted substances.

EU RoHS directive (2011/65/EU) categories

EU RoHS directives ANNEX I specifies electronic and electrical equipment subject to the restriction.

1. Large household appliances
2. Small household appliances
3. IT and telecommunications equipment
4. Consumer equipment.
5. Lighting equipment
6. Electrical and electronic tools
7. Toys, leisure and sports equipment
8. Medical devices
9. Monitoring and control instruments including industrial monitoring and control instruments
10. Automatic dispensers
11. Other EEE not covered by any of the categories above


Compatibility status for EU RoHS Directive

Almost all products we manufacture and sell do not contain the these hazardous substances above the threshold.

However, some products are not planned to be supported. For more information, you can make sure in "Non-compatible product series" of the following list.
In addition, our discontinued products are not listed, so please contact us if necessary.

As of Oct 25, 2023

CE Marking obligations under EU RoHS Directive 

EU RoHS Directive applies to electrical and electronic products (EEE, rated voltage AC1000V / DC1500 or less), and requires CE marking as a means of ensuring compliance.
CE marking means also that it complies with other directives (Low Voltage Directive, Machinery Directive, EMC Directive, etc.).

Ratings/Specifications of  EU RoHS compatible products

There is no change in the each ratings and specifications of RoHS directive compatible products from existing products.
