Deca-BDE Statement

January 18, 2016

On December 17, 2009, all North American suppliers of brominated flame retardants announced commitments to phase out decabromodiphenyl ether (decaBDE ) in the United States to comply with the Enviromental Protection Agencies (EPA) mandate. The implementation of this phase out was to be completed by the end of 2013.

Judd Wire, Inc. does not use decaBDE in any of the products we sell and has been in compliance with this EPA directive since it was put into effect. Judd continues to monitor environmental regulations and strives to ensure its products comply with them as they are updated.

RoHS Compliance

July 19, 2016

To Our Valued Customers,

Dear Customer:

The EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2), which is an updated version of original RoHS EU Directive (2002/95/EC), went into effect on January 3, 2013.  RoHS 2 contains the same exact six hazardous substances and the same maximum concentration limits as RoHS 1, as listed in the table below.

Most Judd Wire product is manufactured in compliance with the current RoHS directive.  The status of Judd Wire product compliance is broken out by industry, as follows:

Aerospace:  Most products are RoHS compliant.  Some products made with high strength conductor are not RoHS compliant due to cadmium used in the conductor alloy.  Wire currently being manufactured to SAE AS22759 and NEMA WC 27500 specifications are fully RoHS compliant.

Automotive: All products are RoHS compliant

Electronics: All products are RoHS compliant

Flat Component: All products are RoHS compliant.

Telecommunications: All products are RoHS compliant

For specific Aerospace product part numbers, and for legacy Judd Wire products, please send an inquiry to Customer Service to verify the compliance status to RoHS requirements.

Policy on Conflict Materials

August 4, 2016

To Our Valued Customers, 

In July 2010 in the United States, President Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank law.) Dodd-Frank contains a provision that requirescertain customers of ours that are publicly-traded manufacturing companies to report whether they obtain certain minerals (tin, tungsten tantalum and gold, and any of their derivatives, known as “conflict minerals”) that are used in the manufacture of their products from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or from any of the countries that share a border with the DRC. The goal of this rule is to prevent the armed groups that control these mines from receiving any financing for their conflict and human rights violations. Judd Wire is committed to collaborating with its suppliers to prevent the use of conflict minerals and to prohibit the use of conflict minerals in all of its products. We appreciate your interest in our products and share your concern about DRC conflict products.

Sincerely,
Steven Gullerud
