This document explains the relationship between Toradex semi-finished goods and respective environmental and safety standards. Compliance of Toradex products to the various directives and standards is confirmed where applicable. Toradex will inform their customers in the event of any change to this status or if any additional relevant information becomes available.
CE marking is obtained for an end product (finished product). Computer modules and carrier boards are semi-finished goods which form part of a complete end product assembly, and therefore Toradex products are not CE marked.
The UL-94 classification is used to distinguish a material’s burning characteristics after test specimens have been exposed to a specified test flame under controlled laboratory conditions. Based on the results of these small-scale flame tests the material is assigned one of twelve flame classifications.
All Toradex products comply with UL-94V-0.
The RoHS directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) bans certain materials from use in EEE. By January 2nd, 2013, all member states of the European Union are required to ensure that new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain more than the maximum allowed concentration of various substances.
All Toradex products comply with the directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2).
REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006).
Toradex aims to capture all necessary information regarding REACH. However, this has so far not been possible for every single component. As of the date of this document, Toradex is not aware of any component used on Toradex products which doesn’t comply with REACH (EC 1907/2006) and the respective SVHC list as of June 16, 2014.
All Toradex manufacturing partners are ISO 9001 certified. Our products undergo a full functional test after production and are then shipped directly to our warehouses. An example of a Colibri production test log file can be found here.
Toradex has full product traceability in place for each individual product throughout the product lifecycle using unique serial numbers.
Various information channels have made reports of violence and human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. Funds generated by mining of certain minerals from these countries support these unacceptable acts. Such "Conflict Minerals" are commonly used in electronic components and include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold (3TG).
Toradex is committed to not sourcing minerals from these conflict zones and providing full transparency throughout its supply chain. However, due to the complexity of today’s supply chain it has not been possible to identify each individual source of minerals used in Toradex products. We continuously work with our suppliers to improve supply chain transparency and take action as may be required. Toradex requires all suppliers to support this process by actively identifying and reporting the source and conflict status of the products that they supply.
As of today, we are not aware of the use of any "Conflict Minerals" in our products which use 3TG minerals from the DRC and adjoining countries.
