The purpose of the EU directive 2011/65/EU, referred to as RoHS 2, is to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic devices. It regulates the use of and introduction of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic components. RoHS stands for the Restriction of Hazardous Substances, which refers to the restriction of the use of such hazardous substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE).
Exemption clause 1c (Annex IV of the EU directive 2011/65/EU) currently applies to the use of lead in infrared detectors.
Future Extensions of Exemptions
Infrared Materials, Inc. is committed to working with the relevant medical and industrial associations to obtain a further extension of the exemptions for medical technology and industrial safety technology beyond the years 2021 and 2024. An extension request cannot be filed until three years before the exemption term ends (i.e., the beginning of 2018).
The latest information regarding RoHS directives for lead selenide (PbSe) and lead sulfide (PbS) detectors is included herein. New information or developments will be incorporated when available.
