Dear Valued Customer,

With respect to Directive 2011/65/EU of European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (the “RoHS2 Directive”), American Metal Group on issues the following statement:

Except to the extent subject to an exemption under the RoHS2 Directive, including that for lead in certain steel grades where lead is intentionally added as an alloying element, American Metal Group confirms that our products comply with the RoHS2 Directive and do not contain any of the restricted substances above the currently proposed general limits.

Lead in the referenced steel grades will exceed the 0.1% by weight general limit, but will, however, meet the RoHS2 Directive limit of 0.35% by weight maximum content for “lead as an alloying element in steel.” (Such steel grades are commonly identified by the letter “L” following the second numeral of the grade designation, for example, 12L14).

Therefore, all our cold finish products are compliant with the threshold requirements of the RoHS2 Directive. This conclusion is based on information received from our suppliers and knowledge of our manufacturing process.

Please contact your local American Metal Group representative if you have any questions or need further information. Thank you for your continued support American Metal Group.
