Conflict Minerals Compliance

The Dodd-Frank Act and related U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules require certain companies to disclose the extent to which the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain conflict minerals sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Conflict minerals include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, which are used in many electronic components and computer products.

Bead Electronics has contacted its suppliers and examined their statements on Conflict Materials for gold (Au) and tin (Sn), materials used on our interconnect pins. To our best knowledge, Bead Electronics is compliant with the Dodd-Frank Act.



RoHS Compliance

RoHS refers to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances. The European Union (EU) instituted RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, which banned six substances (Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexacalent Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenysis, and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers) from being used in the manufacturing process. The goal of this directive is to protect the environment and reduce exposure related health risks.

   REACH compliant

REACH Compliance

REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances.

Bead Electronics does not manufacture or import chemicals, thus does not need to do any registration or pre-registration. Today, all our business partners gave us sufficient guarantees that the materials and products used in the manufacturing of our interconnect pins are and will be registered according to REACH Directive.
