I’m intrigued how the use of an intermediary company helps comply with the RoHS regulations. As was discussed in the earlier thread, to sell a non-compliant product it must have been placed in the market prior to the compliance deadline. The industry-wide interpretation of “placed on the market” is that the item is made available for sale in its final form. An Iyonix motherboard is not the final form of an Iyonix computer. I’m not saying that Castle are wrong, but I will comment that if they aren’t, I’m surprised that no large companies I’m aware of (including the one I work for) have used this apparently simple workaround.
