Does the ROHS Directive apply to USA manufactured electronic products?
ROHS is a European Union Directive. Manufacturers in the USA and the Far East will be unaffected by this directive, with regards to the products that they sell outside the EU. However, it’s not that simple for non-EU manufacturers… Many companies who both operate and manufacture outside Europe, will still eventually sell their products inside the EU. Many EU-member states/countries are huge markets for both Asian and American companies. As such, these companies have to make all their products that they sell/export to Europe compliant with the EU ROHS Directive. Since we do not manufacture our devices within the EU market nor have a dealer/distributor in Europe, then the Directive does not apply to our products, however, we have decided to manufacture our product to the ROHS Directive to comply with our European customer who purchases our device and will operate our device in their European country.
