In February 2003, the European Union (EU) released a directive regarding the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS). The directive restricts the use of lead and other materials in electronic equipment sold in the EU beginning July 1, 2006. NuWay Electronics supports protecting the environment and serving our customers effectively. We have many customers who intend to meet the requirements of RoHS, and we are committed to helping them.

NuWay supports the policy outlined by the National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) calling for new part numbers to be assigned to products which comply with the RoHS directive. At the same time, we are aware that many component manufacturers will take alternate approaches to identifying RoHS-compliant products. NuWay will work with all of our customers and suppliers to make the transition to RoHS compliance as smooth as possible.

NuWay has created a task force to plan and implement NuWay's RoHS response. Their mission is to develop procedures to:

  • Make information available to our customers
  • Segregate inventory where necessary
  • Label or otherwise identify RoHS compliant products

We recognize that our customers have immediate need for answers to a wide variety of questions regarding RoHS compliance. The RoHS compliance status of any individual item can be provided by NuWay on request, to the extent the information is available to us. Many of our suppliers' web sites also provide useful information. The "Brand Line Card" section of NuWay's web site provides links to NuWay's component suppliers.
