HP is committed to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including restriction on hazardous substances in electronic products. The European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive specifies that an electronic product or component may not contain lead, except as specifically provided in the directive.
HP has already met the requirements of several of the RoHS legislations currently in effect. We have also met our voluntary internal goal of eliminating or reducing RoHS substances to EU - specified levels for virtually all HP- brand electronic products worldwide, except where it is widely recognized that there is no technically feasible alternative as indicated by an exemption under the EU RoHS Directive.
All HP-branded products included in the scope of the European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive (also known as RoHS 1) fully meet the current requirements. The directive restricts the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE flame retardants. HP is committed to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations which includes the EU RoHS revision (RoHS 2), Turkey RoHS, China RoHS 2 and all other RoHS-like restrictions.
HP was one of the first companies to set and achieve a voluntary goal to comply with EU RoHS materials restrictions worldwide. We promote harmonisation of material restrictions across different countries because we believe this enables faster adoption to achieve the desired environmental benefits.
