Conflict Minerals 
LINAK requires that suppliers who provide components or materials containing conflict minerals must actively work towards conflict free sourcing. LINAK’s suppliers must perform their own RCOI and due diligence processes in order to facilitate valid and reliable conflict free sourcing. We expect our suppliers to work with their own suppliers in the same way, to ensure traceability of conflict minerals to the originating smelters.

Proposition 65
Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986) is a Californian law which requires businesses to notify Californians about significant chemicals that cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. LINAK requires that all products supplied are free of chemicals (either as ingredients or as residuals) identified by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) pursuant to Proposition 65.

CPSA

The Consumer Product Safety Commission declares that any paint or surface coatings must not contain a concentration of lead greater than 0,009 percent (90 parts per million).
Suppliers that sell paint or surface-coated parts to LINAK are obligated to meet this regulation and must declare the concentration level of lead in their products.  

Product approval
