Intel’s Dear Customer Letter (DCL) on product compliance with regards to ROHS Phthalate Restriction can be found within Intel’s Resource & Design Center

RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU) went into effect in 2011 and is still the official RoHS directive. The 2015/863/EU amends Annex II of RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU) to add the 4 phthalates, bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) to the list of restricted substances. The restriction took effect from July 22, 2019 for electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) products. The 2015/863/EU amendment does not supersede RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU), nor is it regarded as RoHS 3.

Our IEC 62474 Material Declaration Datasheet (MDDS) contains valid verdict against RoHS 2 and its amendments. As shown in the image below, in more recent revisions of IEC 62474, the response to the “RoHS compliant” query under the Declaration table will be “True” if the product is compliant. Presence of any of the 4 phthalates above threshold would cause response to show as “False”.

Declaration

LHPLA This product is Low Halogen (Components): Applies only to brominated and chlorinated flame retardants (BFRs/CFRs) and PVC in the final product. The replacement of halogenated flame retardants may not be better for the environment. Intel Components as well as purchased components on the finished assembly meet the joint JEDEC/ECA JS-709B requirement. True
LHPWB This product is Low Halogen (PCB): Applies Br/Cl in the PCB Laminate. The PCB / Substrate meet IEC 61249-2-21 requirements. The replacement of halogenated flame retardants may not be better for the environment
 
True
PVC This product does not contain PVC
 
True
SVHC Product Contains REACh SVHC above.1% of article
 
False
RoHS Complaint Product is compliant with EU RoHS Directive 2 2011/65/EU (Directive 2011/65/EU) and its amendments (e.g. 2015/863/EU)
 
True

 

Our IEC 62474 MDDS also includes the data related to these 4 phthalates as well as other RoHS substances. Under RoHS table, the “False” response to “Above Threshold? (T/F)” indicates the substance is not present above threshold. If a substance is above threshold, the response will be “True” and the substance mass% data and exemption information (if applicable) will also be provided.
