|RoHS Compliance Plan|
|RoHS compliant information supplied by Digi-Key is based solely on information provided to Digi-Key by the manufacturer.
Digi-Key is not responsible for the accuracy of this information.
|Digi-Key Corporation supports the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation) objective and is actively surveying our suppliers and product to gain awareness of any substances of very high concern (SVHC).
Digi-Key Corporation is distributor of electronic components, supplies and equipment. Digi-Key Corporation is aware and supports the REACH initiative. REACH is Europe’s chemicals legislation that is applicable in all 27 EU member states as well as the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) European Economic Area (EEA) countries Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. REACH creates a system for gathering information assessing risks to human health and the environment, and authorizing or restricting the marketing and use of chemicals produced or supplied in the EEA. REACH has an impact on the EEA producer’s importers and distributors, as well as users of chemicals in the course of industrial or professional activities. Requirements are phased and will occur over several years.
Digi-Key Corporation will display REACH status icons and dates to indicate when the product was identified as being REACH supportive. The icons and explanation of the REACH statuses are explained below. A status date alongside the icon will be noted when applicable.

|Digi-Key uses Geämi, a 100% recyclable packaging product. Please carefully look through the packaging material for product before placing both the outer and the inner tissue into your newspaper bin for recycling.
Geämi has been awarded Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) third party Chain of Custody Certification of the process for tracking and recording the possession and transfer of wood fiber from the forests of origin through the different stages of production to the end user.
All of the Kraft and white paper products that ship from the Morrisville, NC production facility have the SFI Fiber Sourcing label and chain of custody certification number on each roll label. The invoices and packing slips contain the SFI Fiber Sourcing statement and logo. This certification ensures that the raw materials used to make Geämi packaging paper are obtained from mills that only source wood fibers from 100% sustainably managed forests.
