Cornelius, OR (PRWEB) July 14, 2009
Sheldon Manufacturing, Inc., a leading laboratory equipment manufacturer in Cornelius, Oregon, is already compliant and has been prior to its competitors with a US version of Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standards proposed to be implemented on products manufactured after July 1st, 2010.
The Restriction Of Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment currently bans the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. The proposed US bill, introduced into House of Representatives on May 14th, 2009, may be cited as the "Environmental Design of Electrical Equipment Act (EDEE) Act", and contains banning on the same materials in electrical and electronic equipment, among other restrictions.
As a premier international manufacturer of laboratory equipment, including: Anaerobic chambers, water baths, laboratory & industrial ovens, and incubators ( http://www.shellab.com/store/home.php ), Sheldon Manufacturing has been compliant with EU RoHS standards since its enforcement, and, as the US version in large part mirrors the EU version, any Sheldon Manufacturing, Inc. product will already be compliant.
