Luff Research provides, when so quoted, frequency source products that are in full compliance with EU Directive RoHS 2002/95/EC. This directive prohibits the use of 6 hazardous substances in electronic equipment, Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent chromium (CR6+), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominatied diphenyl ether (PBDE).
In our RoHS compliant products, all components and materials, and the manufacturing techniques employed, are chosen so that the resulting product is fully RoHS compliant.
Luff Research supports ending the violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the “Conflict Region”, which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted final rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals,” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The rules require manufacturers who file certain reports with the SEC to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain “conflict minerals”. The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future.
We support these requirements to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and in surrounding countries, which has been partially financed by the exploitation and trade of “conflict minerals”.
1. Support the aims and objectives of the U.S. legislation on the supply of “conflict minerals”.
2. Do not knowingly procure specified metals that originate from facilities in the “Conflict Region” that are not certified as “conflict free”.
If we discover the use of these minerals produced in facilities that are considered to be “non-conflict free”, in any material, parts or components we procure, we will take appropriate actions to transition product to be “conflict free”.
