Identifying Environmental Marks
The RoHS directive has taken effect in July 2006 and requires elimination of six substances from products: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE). The directive goes hand-in-hand with the WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive which requires a recycling plan for electrical products that are sold in Europe.

Avocent products that are RoHS-compliant carry a RoHS mark in two locations: on the bottom of the appliance chassis and on the overpack carton as shown below.
