Murata is approaching all environmentally relevant laws in EU timely by our organized work for environmentally relevant substances. Of course, Murata supply the products that complied with EU RoHS (*1) to our customers.
In 1996, Murata formulated the "Voluntary Regulation Program for Environmentally Hazardous Substances", to establish Murata's voluntary regulation standards. Since then, Murata has worked to reduce and eventually eliminate environmentally hazardous substances contained in our products, ahead of other manufacturers. Murata's voluntary regulation program also covers six substances designated under the RoHS Directive. Murata has undertaken measures to phase out RoHS-designated substances from an early stage before proclamation and enforcement of the former RoHS (2002/95/EC).
In cooperation with customers/suppliers in January 2006 Murata terminated, as a rule, the sale of products not in compliance with the RoHS Directive. And, Murata continues that rules when RoHS amendments are applied in January 2013 and July 2019 under RoHS recast application.
The necessary main matters for EU RoHS compliance are as follows.
At each stage, Murata takes measures respectively, and Murata murata ensures the RoHS compliance.
