In the context of environmental protection, Aeroflex's main targets are the reduction of environmental pollution and the economical handling of resources in partnership with environmentally responsible suppliers which contribute to achieving these goals are subject to our continuous improvement process.
Under particular supervision are the prevention of hazardous substances and a forward looking disposal and redemption system of our products.
Aeroflex RoHS compliance
The European RoHS directive 2002/95/EC and the equivalent german ElektroG restricts the use of six hazardous substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBBs, and PBDEs to a very small percentage in each sub-component.
Aeroflex test and measurement products are classified into the product category 9 (monitoring and control products) which is currently excluded from the scope of these directives.
It is the intention of the European Commission to bring this category within the scope if possible.
Therefore it is Aeroflex's aim to continuously reduce the share of hazardous substances in our products to ensure compliance with European and other directives.
