VeriFone Holdings (PAY) says it has achieved compliance with the "Administrative Measures on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products" recently issued by China's Ministry of Information Industry.
Commonly referred to as China RoHS, these MII rules are similar to the European Union's Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances. The China regulations restrict the importation into and production within China of electrical equipment containing certain hazardous materials, such as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE flame-retardants.
VeriFone says it is committed to protecting the environment, using non-hazardous materials and enabling the proper disposal of its products at the end of their useful life.
"VeriFone has made another major step in the transition to environmentally friendly products," said Paul Rasori, VeriFone vice president of global product marketing. "We are committed to ensuring customers enjoy the broadest product portfolio in compliance with global standards for safe materials in electronic equipment."
VeriFone's RoHS compliant products have been designed to be compatible with existing non-compliant variants, while also adhering to VeriFone's existing product specifications and high-standards of performance and reliability.
