European Union (EU) RoHS Directive

Hazardous substance-regulating EU Directive 2002/95/EC (so-called RoHS Directive) of the European Union (EU) that took effect on July 1, 2006 is a directive that prohibits six substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)) from being used in electric and electronic devices that are treated in EU member countries.

TDK complies with RoHS Directive in all of its products*1.
TDK introduced “Product Environmental Management” in 2004 as a system for continuing and guaranteeing its compliance with the directive, and the company now operates the system as part of its Quality Management System (QMS).
As a component manufacturer positioned midstream of the supply chain, TDK’s QMS conducts prevention and management thoroughly at all stages; from “purchasing,” to “manufacturing” and “selling.”
