Q: Is Cirris RoHS compliant or working on becoming compliant with the standard?
A: Yes. Cirris manufactures products that are compliant with the European Union legislated RoHS standard. Cirris cable and harness test systems produced from the beginning of January 2015 onward are RoHS compliant.
The new EU chemicals policy REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals) came into effect on June 1st 2007. There are many web sites containing detailed information on REACH. We recommend a visit to the European Chemicals Agency site, http://echa.europa.eu.
Cirris Systems Corporation neither imports nor exports chemical substances into or out of the EU. The small amount of chemicals used in our manufacturing process are confined within the United States and none are exported outside of our facility.
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). The Department of State interprets and enforces ITAR. Its goal is to safeguard US national security and further US foreign policy objectives.
For practical purposes, ITAR regulations dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military related technologies (for items listed on the US Munitions List) may only be shared with US Persons unless authorization from the Department of State is received or a special exemption is used.
To be specific, ITAR does not apply to information related to general scientific, mathematical or engineering principles that is commonly taught in schools and colleges or information that is legitimately in the public domain. Cirris Systems products are commercially available testers used for a variety of quality test and verification applications. Cirris equipment can assure that cables, harnesses (or other interconnection devices like PCB’s) are meeting desired build specifications. Our products are not in any way part of the USML list of restricted items. Therefore Cirris Systems does not need to register our products.
In July of 2010, the United States Congress passed legislation requiring companies to report the use of “Conflict Minerals” in the manufacture of their products.
“Conflict Minerals” in this context refer to specific minerals originating from mines controlled by armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries.The specific metals in question are:
- Coltan (columbite tantalite) and its derivatives (Tantalum)
- Cassiterite and its derivatives (Tin)
- Wolframite and its derivatives (Tungsten)
Cirris is committed to complying with this legislation and plans to comply with forthcoming regulations to enable designation of all Cirris products as “Conflict Free”.
Based on our purchasing policy and supplier selection, it is considered highly unlikely that any conflict minerals are used in the manufacturing of our products. Nevertheless, Cirris has defined and started a program of extensive due diligence of our supply base to ensure that this is indeed the case.
Further to the action mentioned above, Cirris will take the appropriate actions to fully comply with the regulations regarding conflict minerals and will support efforts by its customers to reach our common goal to build up a socially responsible supply chain.
