Advantech, the global ePlatform Service Provider, continues to fulfill its social responsibility to global environmental preservation by committing to the European Union 'Restriction on Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment' or 'RoHS' directive before July 1, 2006. Sony also recognizes Advantech's effort toward environmental protection and Advantech was certified as a Sony Green Partner in 2004.

Advantech continually and actively develops its environmental policy, and environmental preservation to the satisfaction of all interested groups is the top priority. To comply with RoHS, Advantech will restrict the use of Lead(Pb), Mercury(Hg), Cadmium(Cd), Hexavalent Chromium(Cr6+), Polybrominated biphenyls(PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl Ethers.

Advantech's lead free transition roadmap includes 3 phases: Phase I, purchase Pb-free equipment and source lead-free parts, Oct/04-Feb/05; Phase II, adjust & refine production conditions and project pilot-runs, Mar/05-Jun/05; Phase III, phase-in of key suppliers to be ready for ordering (by request), Jul/05.

Advantech will work proactively with industry peers and suppliers to clarify standards and identify compatible technologies and processes to reduce hazardous substances in its manufacturing and products. It will be essential for Advantech's suppliers and manufacturers to understand and be compliant to the RoHS directive. Advantech will also build up a 'Green Supply Chain Platform' for supply chain management and make sure all suppliers meet the requirements.
