Environmental Compliance

We encourage our customers and partners to review the various environmental regulations affecting electrical and electronic equipment for themselves for a full statement of the legal requirements. If there is any doubt how these regulations may affect your business, take independent legal advice. Keep in mind that regulations may be revised from time to time, so readers should take care to keep themselves informed.

China RoHS

Summary

  • The Chinese law, "Administration on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products (EIP)" was established jointly by the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry (MII) along with several other Chinese ministries in February 2006. It establishes requirements for hazardous substance content disclosure and marking as well as restrictions on hazardous substances for EIP.
  • The scope is defined in the "EIP Classification and Explanation" document. It includes 10 broad categories of EIP explaining each through the use of product listings. Unlike EU RoHS, components and materials are included directly within the definition of EIP in addition to final products
  • The specific requirements are defined through a series of standards and other documents. They include
    Marking standard  SJ/T 11364-2006
    General Disassembly Requirements   GB/Z 20288-2006
    Environment-Friendly Use Period SJ/Z 11388-2009
    Packing Recycling Mark GB 18455-2001
    Concentration Limits standard SJ/T 11363-2006
    Test Methods standard SJ/T 11365-2006
  • Official binding documents are available in Chinese only. English translations are unofficial therefore subject to interpretation and are therefore non-binding.
  • There are two phases of implementation:
    1. Marking for control of pollution caused by EIP
    2. Concentration limits on certain hazardous substances in EIP
  • The effective date for Phase 1 is 1 March 2007 for all EIP 'put on the market'. This is understood to be the production date for product made for sale. The method of compliance is self-declaration.
  • The scope and effective date for Phase 2 will be included in "The Catalog". The release date is unavailable.

Corporate Statement

TDDI considers its products to fall within the scope of China RoHS Phase 1 therefore all products with the exception of a few specialty items will be produced as compliant.

EU REACH

Teledyne DALSA Digital Imaging Statement regarding European Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 for the Registration, Evaluation Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).

Teledyne DALSA Digital Imaging (DDI) produces products that would be considered an Article according to regulation Article 3(3): "an object which during production is given a special shape, surface or design which determines its function to a greater degree than its chemical composition".

As a manufacturer established outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) TDDI does not have direct obligations under the REACH Regulation however we understand that the businesses that import our products into the EEA may have such obligation.

It is TDDIs understanding that there are four types of requirements that may be relevant to importers of articles within the REACH regulation:

  1. Article 7(1) Registration – if substances in articles are intended to be released during normal and reasonable foreseeable conditions of use and are present exceeding one tonne per year they are required to be registered.
    DDI products do not contain any substances intended to be released during normal and reasonably foreseeable use conditions.
  2. Article 7(2) Notification – when substances of very high concern (SVHC) included on the candidate list for authorization are imported in amounts in excess of 1 tonne per year and present in articles in concentrations > 0.1% wt/wt of the article notification of the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) is required.
    DDI monitors the composition of materials used within it products and will notify the importers of our products of the inclusion of any SVHCs in excess of 0.1% wt/wt of the product as the information becomes available.
  3. Article 33 Communicate – when SVHCs included on the candidate list are included in articles in concentrations about 0.1% wt/wt of the article recipients of the articles must be provided information for the articles safe use.
    TDDI monitors the composition of materials used within it products and will notify the importers of our products of the inclusion of any SVHCs in excess of 0.1% wt/wt of the product as the information becomes available.
  4. Annex XVII – Restrictions – identifies substances that are restricted for use and the conditions of restriction.
    TDDI prohibits the use of any of these materials in its products.
