Fulham, Hawthorne, Calif., has announced its compliance with the European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive that will restrict the use of lead (Pb), mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and two bromine-containing flame retardants: PBB (polybrominated biphenyls) and PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ethers) in electrical and electronic products.

Fulham's goal is to exceed compliance obligations by meeting the requirements of the RoHS directive on a worldwide basis. By July 1, 2006, RoHS substances will be virtually eliminated (to levels below legal limits) for all Fulham electronic products subject to the RoHS directive, except where it is widely recognized that there is no technically feasible alternative (as indicated by an exemption under the EU RoHS directive).
