AEC – Q200
Nijkerk Electronics supplies capacitors, spools and resistors which are specified as AEC – Q200 compliant.
The Automotive Electronics Council has set stress test qualifications for the automotive industry. Nijkerk Electronics supplies many components that meet those strict qualifications. The stress test qualifications have been described under guideline AEC – Q200
REACH (EC 1907/2006) aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. The four processes of REACH, namely the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals, do this. REACH also aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
As a distributor of components, Nijkerk Electronics cannot give out declarations on REACH. Nijkerk Electronics will only work with suppliers of components who meet the REACH requirements. REACH declarations of our suppliers are available upon request.
RoHS 2 and WEEE
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, (RoHS 1), short for Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union.
The RoHS 1 directive took effect on 1 July 2006 and became a law in each member state. Each member state of the EU is required to enforce this law. This directive restricts (with exceptions) the use of six hazardous materials (Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6+), Poly-‐ Brominated Biphenyl (PBB) en Poly-‐ Brominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE) in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment.
The RoHS 2 directive (2011/65/EU) is an evolution of the original directive and became law on 21 July 2011 and took effect on 2 January 2013. It addresses the same substances as the original directive while improving regulatory conditions and legal clarity. It requires periodic re-evaluations that facilitate gradual broadening of its requirements to cover additional electronic and electrical equipment, cables and spare parts.
It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC, which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste.
As a distributor of components, Nijkerk Electronics cannot give out declarations on RoHS. Nijkerk Electronics will only work with suppliers of components who meet the RoHS 2 requirements. RoHs declarations of our suppliers are available upon request.
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules require certain companies to disclose the extent to which the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain so-called conflict minerals sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Conflict minerals include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, which are used in many electronic components.
These regulations are already valid in the US, but will take effect in the European Union from January 1st, 2021.
Nijkerk Electronics does not import minerals. Minerals are being used in components Nijkerk Electronics supplies. Our suppliers, who create these components, do not obtain these minerals from conflict areas. Declarations are available upon request.
