The 2002/95/CE Directive (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), referred to as RoHS, aims to restrict the use of six hazardous substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)). It came into effect on the 1st of July, 2006.
Although cable trays are exempt from the scope of this directive, CABLOFIL products contain none of the substances targeted by this directive.
The EMC Directive 89/336/EEC, repeated by the 2004/108/EC Directive
The EMC Directive 2004/108/EC applies exclusively to active components (i.e. those carrying a current or subject to a voltage).
Cable trays which are by definition passive components, are therefore unaffected by this directive.
When correctly connected to the earth network, the metallic cable tray plays a positive role in terms of an installation's EMC.
