MEC has different certificates and report regarding materials used as well as production processes. Find more information on the following certificates and reports below:
- ISO 9001:2008
- Conflict Material Report
MEC has been awarded with ISO 9001:2008 certificate.
All MEC products comply with EC directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) with regards to the content of hazardous substances. See the certificate here.
For MEC the conversion to RoHS compatibility was straight forward as we were already using high temperature plastics for our basic switches; we have a good experience in making high reliable switches of high grade engineering plastics. All the material used for our products are guaranteed RoHS compatible by our suppliers.
All products manufactured after July 1st 2006 are RoHS compatible.
At the time of the change a RA prefix was added in the beginning of the existing switch and LED part numbers (Multimec 3 and Unimec series) in order to distinguish between RoHS compatible and non-RoHS compatible part numbers.
No prefix was added to the accessories that were intended to be mounted after soldering as these parts did not need to be process compatible. However, all these accessories are RoHS compatible.
All new products created after July 1st 2006 were RoHS complaint from the start and therefore no prefix was added.
Please note that the RA prefix has not been added in any of our technical literature, catalogues nor datasheets but it is used when confirming orders.
REACH - Certificate of Compliance
MEC certifies that our products comply with the chemical legislation within the European Union called REACH, EC No. 1907/2006 of December 2006, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals.
MEC also confirms that none of our products or packaging contains any of the 151 substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) on the latest REACH Candidate List in a concentration above the 0,1% by weight allowable limit.
