Quality and Certifications

Operational discipline is embodied in our quality program, which meets the highest standards: automotive, aerospace, and medical.

Our long history as a commercial foundry—rather than an experimental group—has embedded stringent quality control deep into our corporate culture.

Our long history as a commercial foundry has embedded stringent quality control deep into our corporate culture. Our environmental policy is also to meet the entire requirement related to the Conflict mineral rules applicable to our entire supply chain and also to be fully compliant to RoHS and REACH regulations. 

  • IATF 16949 (includes ISO 9001) and ISO 14001 registration
  • Real time lot tracking with end-to-end traceability
  • Real time and online Statistical Process Control (SPC)
  • Micro contamination, ESD, and 5S program
  • Reverse engineering and failure analysis services
  • RoHS, REACH, and conflict mineral compliance declarations

Environmental compliance contact


The EU RoHS 2 Directive, to ensure that Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) placed on the market does not contain the restricted substances, lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) above maximum concentration levels, became effective 2 January 2013.

Directive 2015/863 amended the EU RoHS2 Directive to restrict four additional phthalates, Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP) and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) above maximum concentration levels. For some product categories, this amended version is effective as of 22 July 2019.


Specific exemptions exist for certain types of EEE as well as certain applications of the above substances.  The directive falls under the CE marking regime.

Corporate Statement

Teledyne MEMS offers both RoHS compliant [to Article 4(1)] and non-compliant products. Refer to the Material Composition Declaration document on specific product download pages to determine RoHS compliance status. Since Teledyne DALSA sells inspection related components for latter inclusion in finished products (inspection systems) it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the product, if in scope, when placed on the market meets the requirements of the directive. Teledyne MEMS assumes no other responsibilities.

China RoHS

The Chinese law, "Administration on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products (EIP)" was established jointly by the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry (MII) along with several other Chinese ministries in February 2006. It establishes requirements for hazardous substance content disclosure and marking as well as restrictions on hazardous substances for EIP.

The scope is defined in the "EIP Classification and Explanation" document. It includes 10 broad categories of EIP explaining each through the use of product listings. Unlike EU RoHS, components and materials are included directly within the definition of EIP in addition to final products.

The specific requirements are defined through a series of standards and other documents. They include:

  1. Marking standard       SJ/T 11364-2014
  2. General Disassembly Requirements    GB/Z 20288-2006
  3. Environment-Friendly Use Period         SJ/Z 11388-2009
  4. Packing Recycling Mark GB 18455-2010
  5. Concentration Limits standard   SJ/T 11363-2006
  6. Test Methods standard SJ/T 11365-2006

Official binding documents are available in Chinese only. English translations are unofficial therefore subject to interpretation and are therefore non-binding.

  • There are two phases of implementation:
  • Marking for control of pollution caused by EIP
  • Concentration limits on certain hazardous substances in EIP
  • The effective date for Phase 1 is 1 March 2007 for all EIP 'put on the market'. This is understood to be the production date for product made for sale. The method of compliance is self-declaration.
  • The scope and effective date for Phase 2 will be included in "The Catalog". The release date is unavailable.
