Harwin monitors, but is not required to comply with, the following legislations:

  • Other RoHS legislations worldwide.
  • WEEE: The majority of Harwin’s products are components and are therefore not affected by, and do not have any obligations under, EU Directive 2012/19/EU. The few EEE products manufactured by Harwin are exclusively sold within Asia, therefore they do not have any obligations under this legislation. Note that all EEE owned and used by Harwin is responsibly disposed of at the end of its working life, as directed by the requirements of the UK WEEE Directive.
  • China RoHS: All Harwin products (including the EEE products sold in Asia) are out of scope of this legislation.
  • The EMC Directive.
  • The Batteries Directive.
  • California Proposition 65.

  • Halogen-Free Plastics (elimination of Chlorine- and Bromine-based flame retardants): Harwin is using Halogen-free plastics in all new designs and considering our options for existing products.
  • AD-DSL: Please cross check with the target product’s Material Composition document.
  • GADSL: Please cross check with the target product’s Material Composition document.
  • IMDS: Harwin is registered with the IMDS database and can declare and propose a product on request. Please email The Compliance Team with the part number(s) and your company’s IMDS ID.
  • CoRAP: The substances listed within CoRAP are not regulated or restricted but Harwin continue to monitor this list and will review any action required when relevant.
  • EPEAT: As a component manufacturer, Harwin is not directly affected by this voluntary scheme.
