The European Union has enacted revised legislation in an effort to reduce the use of certain hazardous materials in products being sold in the EU. Directive 2011/65/EU on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) allows a maximum concentration value for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated biphenyl ethers (PBDE) and cadmium in electrical and electronic equipment supplied in the course of business for distribution, consumption or use in the EU.

The European Union adopted Directive 2002/96/EC on the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), with requirements that went into effect August 13th, 2005. The WEEE Directive is intended to reduce the disposal of waste from electrical and electronic equipment by establishing guidelines for prevention, reuse, recycling, and recovery. B&B Electronics has adhered to WEEE regulations since August 13th, 2005.
In July 2010, the United States enacted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”) which contained a section (Sec. 1502) that regulated “Conflict Minerals”1 for the first time. The Act includes provisions that require manufacturers to perform due diligence in their supply chains to identify and disclosure the use of any Conflict Minerals and whether those Conflict Minerals originated in the “DRC Countries”2 The Act is new and regulations related to the requirements of the due diligence process have not yet been issued by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, which oversees compliance with the Conflict Minerals section of the Act.
Due to the complexities of the mineral supply chain, B&B Electronics is currently unable to verify the origin for the minerals used in our products. We do not knowingly source any product containing Conflict Minerals from the DRC Countries currently; however we are unable to provide clear supply chain verification at this time.
