EUROPOWER also follows the directive regarding RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances). Because of RoHS, every European country has to ensure that new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market from 1 July 2006 does not contain cadmium (<100ppm), lead (<1000ppm), mercury (<1000ppm), hexavalent chromium (<1000ppm), poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). Initially, this issuing is not applicable to generators. Austria and Germany placed their own interpretation to this norm, where generators have to be free of the components mentioned by RoHs. However it is not obligatory, we did choose to comply with this issuing until there is a decisive answer whether generating sets covered by the directive or not.
We questioned our suppliers about the use of these substances and until now, no article contains one of the substances forbidden by the RoHS-regulation. When the regulation is violated, EUROPOWER immediately will do whatever is necessary to substitute that article. We will keep you informed under this item on our website.
