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 PCBs comply with UL-94V-0.
The RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) bans certain materials from use in electrical and electronic equipment ("EEE").

Toradex is committed that all components from 3rd parties used in our products comply with Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2).
We warrant that all products provided by Toradex to customers comply with Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) and Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2015/863; aka RoHS 3.
Please be aware that the RoHS 2 exemptions for the [0034xxx] Apalis TK1 2GB product are in the process of expiration. Please see here for details.

REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). Toradex aims to capture all necessary information regarding REACH. Toradex is not aware of any component used on Toradex products which is not in compliance with REACH (EC 1907/2006) and the respective Candidate List of substances of very high concern - SVHC list. This compliancy statement is always in reference to the latest SVHC list in effect and as communicated by the European Chemicals Agency ECHA.
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 only source minerals from responsible smelters 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.
