Regulation or Directive Description Maxim Position Statement
RoHS Restriction of Hazardous Substances, an EU Directive, RoHS was implemented in 2006 and restricts the use of six (6) substances: Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyl (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) in electronic and electrical equipment.

In order to be RoHS compliant, concentrations must not exceed 0.1% by homogenous layer for all substances except Cd, which has a higher threshold of 0.01%. Exemptions can be found in Annex II of the regulation and applied, however, the goal of RoHS is to restrict the use of these substances if an alternative can be found. EU 2002/95/EC.
