Compliance | EECO Switch


RoHS DIRECTIVE: RoHS And Lead-Free Requirements

The RoHS Directive stands for “the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances” in electrical and electronic equipment.  The Directive bans the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. EECO Switch is fully committed to complying with the current European directives regarding RoHS and Lead-Free electronic components.  In response to these directives, we have developed a lead-free plating alternative.


Essentially all switch products are compliant with the RoHS Directive. All RoHS compliant parts are clearly identified by a logo on the part, and by a label on the shipping tube.

A Certificate of Compliance for affected products is available here.

All membrane switches manufactured after July 1, 2006 comply with the RoHS 2002/95/EC Directive. Since we may continue to stock some non-RoHS inventory for non-EU countries, please call (800) 854-3808 for specific compliance information.


EECO Switch is aware of and supports the European REACH Directive regarding the production and use of hazardous chemicals.

EECO Switch does not manufacture or distribute chemicals of any type, nor do any of our products incorporate any chemical which may be released during the normal function and use of the product. Further, based upon our current manufacturing processes and review of available information from our suppliers, to the best of our knowledge and belief no chemical identified in the most current list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) is present in, or used in the manufacture of, any EECO Switch product.

We continually review the SVHC list and our materials to remain compliant.
