RoHS-2 (2011/65/EU) and RoHS (2002/95/EC)
The European Council made a substantial revision to the RoHS directive (2002/95/EC) and issued directive (2011/65/EU). This new requirement is known as RoHS (Recast), or RoHS-2. There are no changes under RoHS-2 that adversely affect the status of any previous reported part numbers supplied by J.I. Morris Miniature Fasteners or its parent company, Swissturn/USA. All parts previously certified to be RoHS (2002/95/EC) compliant are also RoHS-2 (2011/65/EU) compliant.
REACH (EC No 1907/2006) and the SVCH List
The substances on the SVHC list have been periodically updated by ECHA. Staff at J.I. Morris Miniature Fasteners, Division of Swissturn/USA, constantly monitor this information and compare the content in relation to the products we manufacture. To date, all of our products continue to be fully REACH compliant.
DRC CONFLICT-FREE MINERALS
J.I. Morris Miniature Fasteners, Division of Swissturn/USA, shares the concern that minerals mined from the DRC may be funding conflicts of a global interest. We support the accountability effort to ensure that this material does not make its way into the supply chain. When formally requested, we will complete a materials/minerals traceability process. We only use materials from certified conflict-free sources. Should certification be required we will report (upon request) using an EICC Spreadsheet in accordance with the EICC conflict-free smelter program for compliance reporting. All requests should be directed to the contact at the bottom of this page.
