RoHs refers to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances. The European Union instituted RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC which banned six substances (Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexacalent, Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenysis and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers) from being used in the manufacturing process. The goal of this directive is to protect the environment and reduce exposure related health risks
Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform 1999 and Consumer Protection Act defines and regulates “conflict minerals.” Conflict Minerals - tantalum, tungsten, tin and gold originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Their revenue directly to indirectly benefits armed groups responsible for war and human rights violations in the DRC and adjoining countries. Growing international awareness of the human rights crisis in the DRC region has brought about legislative measures which affect members of the wire and cable industry. Our industry is impacted because these material such as tin, are widely used in many wire and cable products. The Dodd - Frank Act doesn’t prohibit the use of conflict minerals, but rather demands transparency in the supply chain. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission requires publicly traded manufacturers to release reports disclosing the sources of the materials in question. As a privately held company whose main business is distribution, the SEC legislation doesn’t directly affect Blake Wire and Cable. However, if your company requires information regarding conflict minerals compliance, we will be happy to reach out to our manufacturers.
