Corporate Responsibility



"Products" contains a list of grounds LIGHTRON implements to products in order to prove our social activities and commitments in various globally acceptable and recommended measures in an effort to meet diverse market trends and customers' demands in a proactive way.

UL & TÜV (Product Safety)

Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) is an independent product safety certification organization that has been testing products and writing Standards for Safety for over a century. UL is a global leading entity in testing, inspection, certification, auditing and validation for more than 19, 000 types of products, components, materials and systems annually and 22 billion UL Marks appear on more than 72, 000 manufacturers' products annually.

TÜV SÜD certification marks and certificates represent third-party endorsement by a globally renowned organisation. It is a mark of distinction that serves as excellent marketing tools, enhancing the value of your brand and inspiring greater confidence among your business partners and end users. Around the world, the TÜV SÜD logo is widely recognised and respected as a trusted symbol of quality, safety and sustainability.

LIGHTRON has been practically utilizing UL as one of the advanced tools at product marketing and promotion gates as UL is very straightforward measure to earn the customer tractions.

Green Products Guideline

LIGHTRON-controlled document LQI-G86 is "Green Product Manufacture Guidance" which is established in accordance with ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System.
It covers the entire process to develop products which do not affect negatively on human body and the environment and to secure users' safety by verifying harmful chemical substances contained within components and materials used in the production of all LIGHTRON products. Clarifying restriction and limitation of those substances at LIGHTRON sites as well as suppliers' sites is key to maintain the whole guidance.
It subcategorizes into several independent international regulations and recommendations to intensify the extent of the product and process reliability.

  • RoHS Compliance : EU Directive 2011/65/EU
  • REACH SVHC : EU REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006
  • Conflict-free Minerals & Cobalt Control Policy
  • FCC & CE Certifications
  • Laser Safety & FDA Accession

EU Directive 2011/65/EU

Compliant per the European Parliament Directive 2011/65/ and the Council of 8 June 2011 for restricted use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (recast). A RoHS Certificate of Compliance (C of C) is available upon request. The product may use certain RoHS exemptions.

EU REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006

REACH is an acronym for Regulation No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. A substance of very high concern (SVHC) is a chemical substance (or part of a group of chemical substances) for which it has been proposed that the use within the European Union be subject to authorization under the REACH regulation.

REACH Certificate of Compliance is a document certifying that a product is compliant with the EU REACH regulation (EC) No 1907/2006. It can be a testing report or statement issued by a third-party testing organization. It could also be a self-declaration.

Conflict-free Minerals & Cobalt Control Policy and Statement

Conflict minerals & Cobalt refer to tantalum, tungsten, tin, and gold originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”). There are concerns that the conflict minerals fund armed forces of the Covered Countries causing many deaths of their own people and infringement of human rights in the course of mineral excavation such as forced labor and abuse of women and children.

In response to these concerns, the United States Congress enacted the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act (“Conflict Minerals Rule”) requires manufacturing companies listed in U.S. stock exchange to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain conflict minerals & cobalt.

  • Perform an annual audit on site(s) and establish a reasonable measure to work with suppliers as well
  • Set a firm timeline to apply the policy entirely to all LIGHTRON suppliers
  • Make it a rule to make conflict mineral control & cobalt as a pre-requisite requirement when selecting new suppliers


FCC is one of the basic elements that every products to be built on the manufacturing floor should acquire prior to the commercial supply to the customers. Optical transceivers has to be tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the transceivers are operated in a commercial environment.

CE Certificates

CE is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). CE mark is a mandatory when marketing optical components to EU regions and sometime regarded as a global requirement from multi-national end customers.

Laser Safety Certificates & FDA Accession Letter

Class 1 laser compliance is a must at optical transceivers and LIGHTRON products follows multiple international regulations to meet diverse customer demands. All products are tested and found to comply with the limits for Class 1 laser for IEC60825-1 and/or EN60825 (at TUV or CB certificate formats) , and 21CFR1040 specifications.

Electronic and laser safety standard are set by the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC). The goal of these standards is to protect human lives, to provide requirements for manufacturers and to ensure that adequate warning indications are provided by describing the potential hazards associated with fiber optic communication system and components. The standards that needs to be fulfilled at optical transceivers as below.

EN 60950-1:2006 ITE, Safety, General requirements This standard describes the general requirements for the safety of electronic equipment within the field of audio/video, information technology and communication technology

EN 60825-1:2007 Safety of laser products IEC 60825-1 is applicable for the safety of laser products emitting laser radiation in the wavelength range 180 nm to 1 mm.

FDA 21 CFR 1040/10

21 CFR 1040.10 specifications define a set of performance standards for Light-Emitting Products and optical transceivers are included.
