FCI site simplifies Chinese RoHS compliance for customers
Mar 16, 2007
FCI, a developer of connectors and interconnect systems, has simplified the product selection process for customers concerned with meeting the Chinese RoHS environmental regulations that went into effect on March 1.
A link specific to the Chinese regulations has been added to the company's RoHS microsite to allow customers to search by product for detailed information about each connector's compliance with the new specifications.
The microsite displays the circle-e symbol for part numbers that are Chinese RoHS-compliant. If part numbers are not compliant, the EFUP symbol will be displayed along with the "tic-tac-toe" box indicating the banned substances. Information on European RoHS compliance is also available on all products. For part numbers that do not yet define their compatibility via the web site, customers can email Global.RoHS@FCIconnect.com for more information. New part numbers are being added regularly on the site pages.
To assist customers in meeting their legal obligations, FCI established and continues to build an internal database from which lead-free and RoHS reporting information can be easily obtained. In this way, FCI is able to provide its customers with ready access to detailed information on substances found in FCI products.
