Lead (Pb) contain does not exceed the exemption no.6c, which allows lead (Pb) up to 4% by weight, as an alloying element Exemption 6.

RoHS2 is a CE Marking Directive, it is required that a CE marking, and a Declaration of Conformity (DoC) are available for finished electrical and electronic equipment.

Components are not considered equipment. Therefore, CE markings and DoC are not required for Metway electrical connectors products.

The Registration Evaluation Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals REACH 1907/2006 and all the restrictions adopted in the framework of REACH and the previous legislation, Directive 76/769/EEC (Annex XVII) requirements as they stand now are met. The products contain no Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) as listed in the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) web site list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) and Substances restricted under REACH (Annex XVII) except for lead (Pb) that only applies to the products with machined metal components.

As of the 4th June 2021, Annex XVII to REACH contains 69 unique substances/entries. On 10th June 2022, ECHA increased the number of substances on the SVHC List to 224 substances.
