The RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU) restricts the use of certain hazardous substances commonly used in the manufacturing of electronic equipment and requires producers of electronic equipment to reduce the concentration of these hazardous materials which include:


Weight allowable maximum content by restricted substances and homogeneous materials (EU directive 2011/65 / EU Annex II)


Lead (Pb)@i0.1“j

Mercury (Hg)@i0.1“j

Cadmium (Cd)@i0.01“j

Hexavalent Chromium (Cr)@i0.1“j@

Polybrominated Biphenyis (PBB)@i0.1“j

Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)@i0.1“j


The RoHS directive states that as of July the 1st 2006, electrical and electronic equipment manufacturers must eliminate the use of all the above materials. Although RoHS is a European Union (EU) Directive, manufacturers of EEE outside Europe must also abide by this legislation if the equipment they produced is ultimately imported into an EU member state.


As an international company, Matsushiro Metal Manufacturing.Co.,Ltd has adopted the RoHS Directive on or after July 1, 2006, and develops and manufactures products in accordance with these regulations. Matsushiro regards compliance with the RoHS Directive as a major part of its business activities and constantly makes efforts to suppress the content rate of restricted substances.





Our RoHS Policy is based upon the following principles:


         Regardless of the manufacturerfs policy it is our policy that all products manufactured in compliance with the legislation are clearly identified as such.


         As a rule we do not use non-RoHS compliant materials but in the case where one is required for a specific customer requirement these products are stored in separate areas of our warehouse.

         Documented evidence of compliance will be made available if requested.
