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.
