Packaging Research Laboratory (PRL) is the largest ISPM-15 & IPPC inspecting agency in the United States, conducting heat treatment and fumigation inspections of wood processing companies under ALSC and WPM regulations.

“Conflict Minerals,” as defined by the US legislation, currently include the metals tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, which are the extracts of the minerals cassiterite, columbite-tantalite and wolframite, respectively. The extracts of these Minerals are referred to as 3TG.

In compliance with Conflict Minerals Regulations, we have contacted each of our suppliers relating to the following mined minerals; gold, tin, tantalum, and tungsten. Our suppliers have confirmed that the materials supplied to ERA Wire, Inc. do not originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).


RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances, and impacts the entire electronics industry and many electrical products. The original RoHS, known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union in 2002 and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market since July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. Products compliant with the RoHS 3 directive do not exceed the allowable amounts of the following restricted materials: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), four phthalates of Bis(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl Butyl Phthalate (BPP), Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) and Diisobutyl Phthalate (DIBP), with some limited exemptions.


The Annex XVII of REACH regulation contains the list of restrictions of certain hazardous substances, mixtures and articles for their marketing and use on the European market. A restriction can apply to any substance on its own, in a mixture or in an article, including those that do not require registration. The list is often known as REACH Restricted Substances List or simply as REACH Annex XVII.

We have reviewed the current “SVHC” listing, including substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction “CMR” category 1A or 1B, and have determined that none of the items listed are present on/or in the materials we supply.


Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state’s drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

At ERA, we understand that compliance to Proposition 65 is imperative; therefore every effort is made to ensure that the materials we supply conform to said requirements. A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) listing chemical composition of supplied material is available upon request.
