Important information about replacing RoHS compliant FRUs

RoHS, The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and
Electronic Equipment Directive (2002/95/EC) is a European Union legal
requirement affecting the global electronics industry. RoHS requirements
must be implemented on Lenovo products placed on the market after
June 2006. Products on the market before June 2006 are not required to
have RoHS compliant parts. If the original FRU parts are non-compliant,
replacement parts can also be non-compliant. In all cases if the original
FRU parts are RoHS compliant, the replacement part must also be RoHS
Note: RoHS and non-RoHS FRU part numbers with the same fit and function
are identified with unique FRU part numbers.
Lenovo plans to transit to RoHS compliance well before the implementation
date and expects its suppliers to be ready to support Lenovo's requirements
and schedule in the EU. Products sold in 2005 and 2006 will contain some
RoHS compliant FRUs. The following statement pertains to these products and
any product Lenovo produces containing RoHS compliant FRUs.
RoHS compliant FRUs have unique FRU part numbers. Before or after the
RoHS implementation date, failed RoHS compliant parts must always be
replaced with RoHS compliant ones, so only the FRUs identified as compliant
in the system HMM or direct substitutions for those FRUs may be used.
Note: A direct substitution is a part with a different FRU part number that is
automatically shipped by the distribution center at the time of the order.
