FIS connector styles meet Restriction of Hazardous Substances standards

Jan. 4, 2006
Jan. 4, 2006 - Standards met on all FIS-manufactured ST, FC and SC optical fiber connector styles.

Fiber Instrument Sales, Inc. has met Restriction of Hazardous Substances standards on all FIS manufactured ST, FC, and SC optical fiber connector styles.

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standard results from European legislation that will be effective July 1. The legislation bans six hazardous substances from the manufacturing process for certain categories of goods.

To meet RoHS requirements, products must be free of cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr (VI)), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs),
polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and lead (Pb).

"U.S. companies that are seeking to expand globally must work to ensure that their manufactured products conform to the environmental and health standards of the international community," says FIS President Frank Giotto. "Compliance is good for business and the environment."

FIS is based in Oriskany, NY. For more information visit
