Elgood is a distributor of electronics components and manufacturers' representative, we do not manufacture components. We cannot provide RoHS3 certificate on behalf of our suppliers. Most of our manufacturers have taken the policy that RoHS3 certificate is only provided on request for part numbers. For ROHS3 certification, we can provide our customers a list of components supplied to them. To avoid unnecessary work for our manufacturers' factories, we ask customers to tell us which products are still actively used.

Elgood pays attention to environmental issues when selecting suppliers, and we represent only manufacturers who are committed to complying with them.
