Fastbolt is a partner to many original equipment manufacturers that supply electric & electronic equipment to end users within the European Union and therefore governed by the RoHS directives listed above.


The RoHS directives specify the maximum concentrations levels of Hazardous Substances identified below that can be present in products which include electronic sub-assemblies and systems. The scope of RoHS (II) directive (2011/65/EU) applies to WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).


Fastbolt’s entire inventory is controlled by lot number and each item can be traced to the manufacturer and/or supplier. This enables the segregation of RoHS and WEEE compliant material from non-compliant material.


Fastbolt, when requested or mandated by our customer’s contracts, purchase orders and/or drawings or specifications will certify compliance to RoHS directives and will maintain support documentation on file.

Conflict Minerals


Fastbolt is not required to report directly to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding the Conflict Minerals ACT outlined in Dodd-Frank Act (SEC. 1502). As a dedicated partner within your supply chain, Fastbolt has implemented measures to “Flow-Down” responsibilities within our supply chain to identify country of origin.


Conflict Minerals originate from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) region in Africa: Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.  Common Conflict minerals are: Cassiterite [Sn] (Tin), Wolframite [W] (Tungsten), Columbite [Ta] (Tantalite) and Gold [Au].
