Gas detection expert Industrial Scientific has met a strict EU standard on hazardous substances which aims to reduce the impact of global consumer electronic waste.
Effective immediately, all its products will be manufactured according to the European Union Directive 2011/65/EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Standard.
As a result, all items shipped from Industrial Scientific manufacturing facilities to European customers will now meet these stringent compliance standards, which prohibits the sale of electronics with certain hazardous materials to member countries.
Banned substances include lead, mercury and cadmium, which have all been found to have negative health effects on humans through direct contact, even at low exposure levels.
President and CEO Justin McElhattan stressed that Industrial Scientific is “fully committed to protecting the environment and reducing exposure to hazardous chemicals.”
“By eliminating the restricted materials from our products, we are protecting our employees from any potential exposure while reducing the environmental impact our products have on our communities,” he added.
Industrial Scientific is a leading global provider of portable gas detectors and gas detection services based in Pennsylvania, US.
AMETEK Land has standardised all its Certificates of Conformity for its fixed spot and portable infrared thermometers. This includes calibration test measurement data that is recorded during the standard production process at three AMETEK Land-specified temperature points.
