Material Compliance

ROHS/REACH Compliance


Compliance with material regulations including EU Directives 2011/65/EU (ROHS2) and EC No 1907/2006 (REACH)

The supplier assures that the delivered products comply with all legal requirements, in particular the EU Directives 2011/65/EU (ROHS2) and EC No 1907/2006 (REACH) as amended, even if the supplier is located outside the scope of the aforementioned EU regulations. Pepperl+Fuchs expects that the substance prohibitions formulated in regulations for the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) will also be complied with when supplying components that do not fall within the original scope of EU Directives 2011/65/EU (ROHS2).

The supplier is obligated to fill out the supplier declaration completely and truthfully for each product delivered to Pepperl+Fuchs and to submit this declaration again to the e-mail address listed here. In the event of changes to the legal framework conditions or changes to the product, the supplier declaration must be resubmitted without request.

Conflict Minerals

In various countries, particularly in Central Africa, revenues from the mining of raw materials such as gold, tantalum, tin, and tungsten (3TG) are used to finance armed conflicts. This results in the unacceptable violation of human rights. Avoiding so-called conflict minerals from the affected areas is therefore more important than ever. As the use of 3TG in the electronic components we source cannot be avoided, we apply the standard supply chain data collection procedure to gain control over our immediate suppliers. All affected suppliers are required to provide information on the origin of conflict materials contained in components supplied to us using the most current "Conflict Minerals Reporting Template" (CMRT).

In addition, we have communicated our commitment to remove conflict materials from our supply chain. We expect our suppliers to apply the same standards to their direct suppliers. In this way, we aim to achieve our goal of conflict-free sourcing. If you have any questions regarding the issue of 3TG, please contact your local sales contact at Pepperl+Fuchs.
