Restriction of Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS)

The European Union has defined a group of six compounds as restricted hazardous substances under its RoHS Directive. They are: mercury, cadmium, lead, chromium VI, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE). Trimble is currently redesigning its products to remove these materials where they exist, and is actively working to abide by the new EU restrictions. Effective July 1, 2006, Trimble products put on the European market will meet the requirements imposed by the RoHS Directive. Further, Trimble is working toward applying these same standards to all of its products wherever Trimble sells or distributes them.


Distributor WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Obligations

Distributors are to assume the obligations outlined by the European Directive 2002/96/EC for WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). The WEEE directive went into effect in 2004 with individual Member State completing the transposition of the directive into local law through 2006. 

The purpose of this Directive is to:

  1. Prevent the waste associated with electrical and electronic equipment.
  2. Enable reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery to reduce the disposal of waste.
  3. Improve the environmental performance of everyone involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment.

The Distributors general obligations are as follows:
"Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Reseller acknowledges and agrees that Reseller qualifies as, and will be considered the "producer" of the Products within the meaning of any laws, regulations or other statutory schemes providing for the marking, collection, recycling, take-back and/or disposal of electrical and electronic equipment (collectively, "WEEE Regulations") in any jurisdiction whatsoever, (such as for example national laws implementing EC Directive 2002/96 on waste electrical and electronic equipment, as amended), so long as an exemption from compliance is not available. As such, Reseller assumes sole responsibility for complying with all applicable WEEE Regulations in connection with the Products it purchases and for all associated costs. Trimble agrees to cooperate with Reseller to provide information related to the Products to assist Reseller in complying with the WEEE Regulations."

Specific Distributors obligations include:

  1. Register and maintain registration within their respective jurisdiction as required
  2. Reporting to their respective jurisdictions at the prescribed intervals
  3. Provide WEEE report data to Trimble at http://support.trimble.com

Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

Trimble is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values concerning human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility. On August 22, 2012 the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") published final regulations implementing the "conflict minerals" reporting obligations under section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Trimble is actively implementing the procedures, systems and reporting requirements necessary to comply with these regulations.

The Dodd-Frank Act requires that all publicly traded companies subject to SEC rules report annually on the presence of certain minerals, characterized as conflict minerals, including tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold, in the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, and demonstrate the proper level of due diligence in determining whether these minerals originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("DRC") or an adjoining country or from scrap or recycled sources. The goal of the act is to cut direct and indirect funding of groups engaged in armed conflict and human rights abuses.

Trimble does not directly purchase any conflict materials. Tracing these materials back to their country of origin is a complex task that may require us to, among other things, survey suppliers in our supply chain to understand what programs they have in place for tracing the source of minerals supplied to us or used in products supplied to us and to ensure that reasonable due diligence has been performed. Trimble uses and requires its suppliers to use the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC)/GeSI Conflict Minerals Standard Reporting Template Tool as part of the due diligence procedures used to determine the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals in the assemblies, parts or components they supply to us.

Trimble fully understands the importance of this issue and we will take the proper steps to ensure our continued compliance with the reporting obligations imposed by the SEC.
