ROHS Statement

The RoHS directive calls for restricting or eliminating the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, or polybrominated diphenyl ethers in electrical and electronic equipment. All but 2 of the 10 product categories defined in WEEE Annex 1A and 1B must comply with the RoHS directive, effective 1 July 2006. The exceptions are "Medical Devices" and "Monitoring and Control Instruments", and a general exception for products used by the military or for homeland defence.

It has been determined that all of Unigraf products are classified as "Medical Devices" or "Monitoring and Control Instruments," and are currently not subject to the RoHS directive. The exemption of Unigraf products from the RoHS directive extends only to products that Unigraf manufacture. Despite our current exempt status, some of Unigraf products are already available with RoHS compliance. Additionally, Unigraf is actively moving towards RoHS compliance of all products.
