RoHS Information

More than 97% of Misumi components are RoHS compliant

What is RoHS?

The "Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment" is better known as the RoHS directive. Manufacturers worldwide who wish to market their products in Europe, need to understand the requirements of the RoHS Directive and ensure that their products, and their components comply. The RoHS Directive's scope is originally for consumer electronics, and does not require industrial, proprietary manufacturing equipment to meet these targets. But many companies are proactively setting their internal purchasing standards to comply, not only in Europe, but all over the world.

Misumi provides compliance information for all its products. Currently 97% of our products are confirmed compliant, and we are working toward replacing the few that are still non-compliant.

All of our catalogs will display compliancy information for every part number. Misumi continues to provide the most up-to-date information on its website.

  1. 'RoHS' mark in the brochure/catalog/e-catalog etc. of MISUMI shows that the product does not contain the six (6) Restricted Substances of RoHS Directive of EU more than the threshold value or the value of the applicable exemption. (Our RoHS mark does not show whether the product is 'CE compliant' or not.)
