Industrial Scientific Complies with Restriction of Hazardous Substances Standard

Industrial Scientific has announced that, effective immediately, all products will be manufactured according to European Union Directive 2011/65/EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Standard. Products shipped from Industrial Scientific manufacturing facilities to European customers will meet RoHS compliance standards.

RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU prohibits the sale of electronics with certain hazardous materials to member countries. The substances include lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. The goal of RoHS is to reduce the impact of global consumer electronic waste. Each of the prohibited chemicals has been shown to have negative health effects on humans through direct contact, even at low exposure levels, and when electronics containing the chemicals are discarded.

“Industrial Scientific is dedicated to preserving human life, so it only makes sense that we are also committed to protecting the environment and reducing exposure to hazardous chemicals,” says Justin McElhattan, president and CEO of Industrial Scientific. “By eliminating the restricted materials from our products, Industrial Scientific is protecting our employees from potential exposure while reducing the environmental impact our products have on our communities.”
