RoHS compliance

This directive - which requires the elimination of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ether flame retardants in certain Electrical and Electronic Equipment put on sale in Europe - is mostly household application orientated. Schneider Electric will fully comply with the directive. In addition, although our products and equipment are little or indirectly affected, Schneider Electric's commitment is to be more beyond the directive.
