Fairview Microwave RoHS Compliance Program
At Fairview, we recognize our responsibility as an international supplier of RF, Microwave and Millimeter wave electronics products to maintain a comprehensive RoHS compliance program. We are fully committed to offering RoHS compliance on the majority of our products and posting accurate RoHS compliance status for all of our products. We have posted this data on our website so that it can be easily found for each part number within our on-line catalogue.
What is RoHS Compliance?
The European Union set forth the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive to establish environmental guidelines and legislation to reduce the presence of six (6) materials deemed hazardous to the environment. To comply, products entering the EU must not have a homogeneous presence of these materials above the following levels by weight percentage:
- Lead (Pb) < 0.1%
- Mercury (Hg) < 0.1%
- Cadmium (Cd) < 0.01%
- Hexavalent Chromium (CrVI) < 0.1%
- Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) < 0.1%
- Polybrominated Diphenyl Esters (PBDE) < 0.1%

Lead Free Cable Assemblies
Many of Fairview’s cable assemblies are built with leaded solder. If so, the part will not be RoHS compliant and a certificate will not be found on the product page for that assembly. However, many of these assemblies can be brought into RoHS compliance through the use of Lead-Free solder. If the assembly you desire is not RoHS compliant, there may be a RoHS compliant version with a similar part number. If so, you will see an “LF” contained in the basic part number (example FMC2222085LF is the lead free version of FMC2222085). Please note: the “LF” designation is used only when the base part number is not RoHS compliant. Many assemblies do not include “LF” and are compliant because they are only offered in a RoHS compliant configuration.
