There is compliance with the following guidelines:

All base materials used are produced by its suppliers in full compliance with the mentioned EU Directives and do not contain any of the prohibited substances. The use of RoHS compliant PCB surface finish is specified by the customer.
Following RoHS compliant surface finishes are available at Multi-CB:
- Immersion tin
- Immersion silver
- Immersion gold (ENIG)
- HAL lead-free
If you have previously ordered your PCBs with HAL SnPb (lead tin) surface, you can opt for one of these alternative lead-free surfaces in the future. In the standard case, immersion gold or HAL lead-free. In accordance with the legally regulated exceptions¹, Multi-CB - on special customer request - continues to provide the non-RoHS compliant surface HAL SnPb (lead tin).
When changing the surface of HAL SnPb to an RoHS-compliant alternative, we strongly recommend to mark these re-orders as RoHS compliant, to avoid mix-ups.
¹ Exception clauses permit the continued use of products containing lead in some industrial branches. For this reason, it remains possible to order HAL SnPb surface from Multi-CB.
