NextComputing Restriction of Hazardous Substances Compliance Statement

NextComputing is committed to compliance with the RoHS Directive (Directive 2011/65/EU) from the European Union (EU). NextComputing also is committed to complying with requirements of other applicable current or future environmental laws, where NextComputing does business. NextComputing’s RoHS compliance planning is based on conformance to the RoHS Directive issued by the EU, and not on any specific Member State legislation or legislation from any other countries. As other environmental regulations are passed by the U.S. or other countries in which NextComputing does business, NextComputing’s compliance planning will respond accordingly.

The RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at raw homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component. NextComputing certifies that its products are RoHS compliant.

Labeling is not required by the RoHS Directive and no industry or regulatory standard for RoHS labeling exists. Currently, NextComputing does not intend to label products as RoHS-compliant.
