RS Compliance Definitions

As a distributor RS relies on the compliance information provided by suppliers.

Many suppliers have not yet stated when their products will be
made compliant. As soon as this information is available it will be displayed on this web site. 

We have taken all reasonable steps to confirm the status of products, which are shown on our website as follows

RoHS compliant

  • Where manufacturers have confirmed the RoHS compliant status and where we are confident that stock held in our stores is compliant.

RoHS non-compliant
  • This flag will only be displayed when manufacturers have indicated that the product is currently non compliant and will not be compliant in the future.
RoHS exempt
  • This will only be shown where it has been confirmed that the component is exempt from RoHS.
