European Union Restrictions on Hazardous Substances RoHS (recast directive) Hazardous substances can have a tremendous impact on our environment. We recognize the importance of compliance with international regulations that restrict hazardous substance content in electrical and electronic equipment and we continuously review and update our procedures in order to meet our obligations under these regulations. Effective July 1, 2006, we updated the design and manufacture of our products in compliance with the regulatory requirements set forth in the RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC), which placed limits on the use of six specific hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Effective January 2, 2013, we further updated the design and manufacture of our products in compliance with the new regulatory requirements set forth in the RoHS II (recast) Directive (2011/65/EU), which added additional requirements relating to the CE marking and technical documentation. While the list of restricted substances has remained unchanged, new requirements have been added relating to CE marking and technical documentation. Effective March 1, 2007, our products became compliant with the obligatory marking requirements of the Measures for the Administration of the Control of Pollution by Electronic Information Products regulations (“China RoHS”).
