Japan RoHS (J-MOSS)

Japan RoHS law combines the Japanese Recycling Law (Law for Promotion of Effective Utilization of Resources in Japan) with the JIS C 0950 standard (marking for presence of the specific chemical substances for electrical and electronic equipment) and is referred to as J-MOSS. Japan RoHS restricts the same six substances in the same concentration limits as EU RoHS 2.

All products in the above listed categories are marked with either an orange "R" mark or a green "G" mark, depending on whether any of the six restricted substances exceed concentration limits or not.
