All PULS standard units published on our website fulfill the Directive 2011/65/EU

(Title: Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) - abbreviated as RoHS II) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011.

RoHS Status Confirmation

For each standard unit, we publish the RoHS-Certificate of Conformity (CoC) in the download area on our website.

RoHS Scope - PULS Standard Units

According to the current status of legislation all PULS standard units fall in Category 11 of ANNEX I in directive 2011/65/EU.

EEE under Category 11 must meet the requirements according to the restricted substances referred to in Article 4 (1) by 22 July 2019 at the latest.

Today, the RoHS II conformity of all our standard units has been achieved since June 2011. For units with a launch date after June 2011, the RoHS II compliance is already provided with market launch. This means, all PULS standard units meet the restricted substances referred to in Article 4 (1) and the maximum concentration values by weight of homogeneous materials according to Annex II. Applications exempted from the restriction in Article 4 (1) are applied and respected.

RoHS Compliance Processes at PULS

  • PULS verifies the Directive 2011/65/EU compliance based on the RoHS confirmations of its subcontractors.
  • RoHS status of all components used in our products is monitored in our component master database.
  • Each component or material assembled in our products needs to pass our internal component approval process where RoHS conformity is one of the verification requirements.
  • At supplier audits we check the implementation in compliance with RoHS at our suppliers.
  • In our frequent product audits we carry out a sampling analysis to check component compliance according to EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU. These analysis measurements are in accordance with EN 62321 [Title: Electrotechnical products - Determination of the levels of six regulated substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers); (IEC 62321:2008)].
