Press release date: July 22, 2014

Osceola, Wisconsin — The official deadline for medical devices to gain RoHS compliance is here on July 22nd. This medical device directive addresses the restriction of hazardous substances in a wide range of surgical equipment, monitoring systems, control instruments, and more. Offering RoHS 2 compliant wire and cable assemblies, pre-validated material supplier directories, electrical testing services including x-ray fluorescence material analyzer equipment, technical documentation guidance, and more, Northwire Inc. is your partner for regulatory compliance and quality certification.

NWI Lab360, Northwire's quality control lab, is approved by CSA GROUP with ISO 17025 accreditation (ISO 17025:2005). With complete quality assurance testing capabilities and an intimate understanding of RoHS 2 requirements, our cable manufacturer is fully equipped to assist clients with product categories through 2019.

Additional industries will be affected by the recast RoHS directive in the next five years:
July 22, 2016: Category 8. In vitro diagnostic medical devices
July 22, 2017: Category 9. Industrial monitoring and control instruments
July 22, 2019: All electrical and electronic equipment (except those explicitly excluded)

Cables and wires for each of these categories must meet RoHS 2 standards on these same dates. Stay ahead of the competition with Northwire, one of the leading cable suppliers already manufacturing cable and wire compliant to the RoHS 2 directive.
