PCB Regulatory Affairs & Compliance

PCB Piezotronics is committed to ensuring compliance with applicable global laws and regulations. To maintain effective compliance risk management strategies, and controls consistent with our deep compliance culture, PCB Piezotronics builds compliance accountability, oversight, and risk management into all levels of the business.

PCB Piezotronics regularly assesses the effectiveness of internal compliance controls, including policies, procedures, training, data analytics, and control validation. PCB Piezotronics' employees receive annual training on compliance risk areas specific to their work responsibilities. This includes training for a range of compliance topics (e.g., current laws applicable to our products, proper handling of proprietary or trade secret information, cyber security, anti-corruption, U.S. Government procurement integrity rules, and data privacy). Everyone has their role at PCB to ensure compliance. Compliance training is reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that it is current, relevant, and effective. PCB Piezotronics' products are developed with regulations in mind and the assumption that end-of-life products will be returned or recycled, therefore not entering into the normal waste streams.

PCB Piezotronics' goal is to create a proactive culture of compliance, this includes integrated compliance risk management, effective and efficient compliance controls, compliance risk mitigation, and accountability. The compliance team evaluates the company's most significant compliance risks, along with associated mitigation strategies, and then prioritizes the most important emerging issues for additional attention. Where appropriate the compliance team elevates issues to PCB Piezotronics' General Manager and to the Senior Leadership Team. PCB Piezotronics' program also partners with internal audits to validate the effectiveness of compliance controls.

Many of our products have additional certifications please review the product model with your sales associate for specific certifications including IECEx, ATEX, CCC, KC, InMetro, PESO, FCC, IC, and SIL.


As part of our commitment to supply environmentally-safe products throughout the world, PCB Piezotronics, Inc. supports the aims of the European Union's Conformité Européenne. CE certification is an EU safety directive that indicates that a product has passed certain tests. It means that a product can legally be sold anywhere within the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA). We offer a variety of products that have CE compliance. The CE marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that are manufactured in, or designed to be sold in, the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area. Please see the Product Specification Sheet or additional documents to confirm if the product you are interested in is CSA/ETL marked.

The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives. PCB Piezotronics products may declare Low voltage Directive, Radio Equipment Directive, ATEX, EMC, or RoHS to create CE compliance. RoHS is required on all PCB Piezotronics products that enter the European Economic Area, in accordance with European Community Regulation Directive 2011/65/EU as amended by Directive 2015/863 regarding the restriction of use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (ROHS). Please see the Product Specification Sheet to confirm your model's product family is in compliance with the CE which includes any applicable directives.

PCB Piezotronics RoHS Statement


PCB supports the aim of the European Regulation EC 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). REACH addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. REACH continues to evolve and add more chemicals every 6 months. PCB reviews our chemicals regularly and we base our declaration conformity on the wording of the REACH Regulation and the guidelines given in "REACH –Guidance on requirements for substances in articles", issued by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

PCB bases its material content knowledge partly on information provided by third parties. PCB Piezotronics has taken and continues to take commercially reasonable steps to provide representative and accurate information. However, PCB may not have conducted destructive tests or chemical analysis on incoming material and chemicals. The information provided in this letter is true and correct to the best of our knowledge based on commercially reasonable review steps.

California Proposition 65

PCB Piezotronics is committed to supplying environmentally safe products throughout the world and as such supports the aims of California Proposition 65. This is consistent with our own commitment to promote the responsible manufacturing, use, and disposal of products. Many of PCB's products do not need a warning because they fall under the safe harbor limits. Most of PCB's products are exempt due to the NSRL and MADL levels according to OEHHA. All PCB products are designed to be returned or recycled at the End-of-Life keeping them out of the usual waste streams.

PCB Piezotronics Proposition 65 Statement


PFAS are widely used, long lasting chemicals, components of which break down very slowly over time. PCB Piezotronics is aware of the changing opinions and regulations regarding PFAS. It is a common component found in electronics and microphones. We are committed to the removal and replacement of PFAS in our products without compromising our functionality and efficiency. There are some areas where PFAS may be required for our products due to Physics. PCB is actively and aggressively working to identify, eliminate, or replace, any and all PFAS where practical within our products in an effective manner.
