Statement on RoHS Compliance by JFW Industries, Inc.
(updated May 28, 2015)
Effective July 1, 2006 JFW (Indianapolis, IN) complies with the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC. We have completed implementation of the required changes in our production and purchasing departments. JFW’s engineering department has approved all new RoHS Compliant materials, solders, components and final products. No engineering changes notices or first articles will be provided to customers unless specifically requested.
Effective immediately all JFW quotes will state that all products will be RoHS Compliant. Customers who require a RoHS Compliant first article or want to continue to receive non-RoHS Compliant (“lead based”) products will have to notify JFW prior to the start of production.
Customers who purchase JFW products, which are uniquely designed and manufactured for them, may request that their unique product be left as-is (containing “lead based” materials). Any customer who purchases non-unique JFW products and who cannot accept “lead-free” products can have a separate part number created for their new custom part that will contain non-RoHS Compliant materials.
JFW is aware of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHs-Recast). Once fully implemented, certain JFW products
may have “CE” marking in an effort to consolidate marking requirements as mandated by the European Parliament.
