Acer supports ban of BFRs and PVC in RoHS revision

PC manufacturer Acer has writen a position paper to strongly support the proposals for restrictions for PVC and Brominated Flame Retardant substances in the RoHS revision, writes ChemSec.
Acer particularly supports Amendments 29, 31 and 71 of Jill Evan's report. In the position paper, sent to Members of the European Parliament in the Environment Committee yesterday, Acer states: ”Without having mandatory bans on the use of organo-Cl/Br-substances, which is envisioned in the revised RoHS Directive proposal, the introduction of PVC/BFRs-free products will be delayed in the market.”

Acer believes that the revision of the RoHS Directive in a stricter manner is necessary, i.e., the restriction of PVC and BFRs at least for categories 3 and 4 by 2014/5. When such a regulation is expected, the supply chain and the market will move quicker toward organo-Cl/Br free materials and components, the paper states.
