    Exemption 6c - Lead in Copper Alloys

    Wendy Preston

      Hi all,


      Has anyone had any update/news on this exemption being extended? I can't believe that this one would be allowed to expire without someone saying something to the
      EU? After all, as far as I am aware, there's no viable economic alternative to free-machining brass, and it's a substance that we do use in some volume here at Harwin.


      Just wondered if anyoner has any news - or do I need to start getting Purchasing worried?
