Handling Substances of Concern
Our products are lead-free and compliant with the RoHS Directive and REACH regulations.
Policy on Conflict Minerals
We are working towards prohibition of the use of 3TG (tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold) mineral resources extracted from conflict zones, such as African countries with humanitarian problems. We are actively working to cut off direct and indirect sources of funds to armed groups, and striving to stop human rights violations and environmental destruction.
We are working to raise product quality and protect the global environment.
