Action plan for compliance with RoHS2 (10 substances)


Directive 2015/863 was published on June 4, 2019 by EU aiming at restriction of hazardous substances which is known as "RoHS2" contained in electric and electronic devices. Four phthalates of DEHP, BBP, DBP and DIBP are to be added to the original six substances effective as of July 22, 2019. The newly added substances are widely used in Japan including our products. We will take necessary actions to comply with regulations by "RoHS2" as described below.

Conformity determination

The restricted substances regulated by the revised RoHS Directive [2011/65/EU and (EU)2015/863] are not intentionally contained except for the use exempted from restriction.
*Special note : In case it is believed that the substances are not intentionally contained, unable to predict technically, or found that the amount of content is too small to detect by the the survey report on chemical substance content for a on-market products, we deem it as in our implementation.
