Product environmental compliance
Environment, Health & Safety regulations are applied in ST worldwide. Our list of regulated chemicals meets the regulations of the countries where we are located and reflects agreed customer requirements.
ST complies with all laws and regulations regarding material declaration and the elimination of chemical and hazardous substances used in products and manufacturing. This includes
- RoHS, REACH and ELV: ST meets applicable worldwide product environmental regulations and requirements related to our products and services, including those stipulated by the European Union on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), the European Union on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and on the End of Life of Vehicles (ELV).
- Lead-free: ST devices are qualified to ensure their resistance to the soldering temperatures for tin-lead solder requested by PC board mounting. ST is a member of the DA5 consortium which seeks to standardize solutions for lead-free solders for attaching dies to packages during manufacturing.
- Material declaration: ST has adopted the IPC-1752 standard for reporting declarable substances and material groups. The ST list of banned, exempted and declarable substances is regularly reviewed to include regulations and customer requirements and ensure our suppliers respect our rules regarding the use of chemicals and hazardous substances.
- ECOPACK®The voluntary ECOPACK® program started in 2000 to remove polluting and hazardous substances from our products. We meet all applicable requirements such as REACH, RoHS and ELV, developing solutions that eliminate RoHS chemical compounds from our manufacturing lines and products.
ST products are therefore classified according to the following ECOPACK® grades:
- ECOPACK® or ECOPACK®1: Compliant with the RoHS directive, have second level interconnect lead free (with adapted reliability for soldering at higher temperature) and compliant with the ELV Directive
- ECOPACK®2: ECOPACK®1 + free of brominated, chlorinated and antimony-oxide flame retardants
- ECOPACK®3: ECOPACK®2 + free of halogens with no RoHS exemptions
ST anticipates compliance with laws and regulations regarding material declaration and the elimination of chemical and hazardous substances from its products and manufacturing processes. Changes that may derive from such evolution and that impact our products are communicated to our customers through the change management process.
STMicroelectronics’ banned, exempted and declarable substances list is regularly reviewed to include applicable regulations and customer's requirements and to insure that our suppliers are in line with our rules regarding the use of chemicals and hazardous substances. It defines STMicroelectronics declarable substances that our suppliers and subcontractors have to report in addition to regulated substances declarations.
STMicroelectronics has adopted the IPC1752 as the standard for the reporting of declarable substances and material groups. Our overall objective is to provide our customers with full product material chemical composition based on IPC-1752-2 Class 6 or IPC1752A, including:
Product information (including product Raw Line code for specific product materials declarations).
Manufacturing Process reporting application ( Terminal base alloy, Moisture sensitivity, Reflow cycles...)
- Detailed materials chemical content of our products
- List of substances by homogeneous material international reference
- Homogeneous material weight (gram and ppm)
- JIG declaration
RoHS declaration and exemptions
REACH SVHC declaration
To access the materials declaration, you can either browse the product tree in the Product selector or enter the commercial part number in the search box. The materials declaration document is symbolized by the icons under orderable products in the product folder page. Adobe Reader® 7.0.5 is required as a minimum to open the materials declaration forms.The latest versions of Adobe (8.0 and above) are recommended for optimized use of the form.
Either the PDF form ( IPC-1752-Class 6, or ST's one for the new forms) and XML form (v1 or v2 fully defined by the standards and that can be loaded on customer's databases) are published on st.com. Files are downloadable under the default filenames PART_NUMBER_md.pdf, PART_NUMBER_md.xml.
IPC-1752A is available for the new products chemical declarations and change only.
The IPC-1752-2 Class 6 forms published on st.com will be reviewed on case by case basis only as no mass documents update obligation applies.
ST's specific product material declaration forms (either IPC-1752-2 Class 6 orIPC-1752A) include the full chemical content of ST products (including REACH SVHC declaration if any).
