New downloadable version on RoHS Express site.

CHICAGO, JUNE 9, 2005 Newark InOne, the leading small-quantity distributor of electronic components and test equipment in North America and a subsidiary of global Premier Farnell plc, now offers a RoHS Legislation and Technical manual in a dowloadable format on its RoHS Express website at www.newarkinone.com/rohs. RoHS Express was launched in May by Newark InOne to provide design engineer and component buyers with a continuously updated, in-depth source of information and news relating to the upcoming European Union directive.

The comprehensive 22-page RoHS Legislation and Technical Manual contains an introduction to RoHS, the industry's first Step by Step Guide to Compliance, detailed information about the substances affected, a chapter on soldering and a closing environmental section.

The RoHS Express area also offers visitors the opportunity to register to receive free monthly RoHS email updates, highlighting the latest news and new compliant products.

Jeff Shafer, SVP, Product, Newark InOne, comments: "We understand the frustrations experienced by our customers as they face the challenge of achieving compliance with RoHS - and we're committed to simplifying the process for them. The RoHS Legislation and Technical Manual, and the other rich content on our RoHS Express site, is intended to help our customers find answers to their most commonly asked questions."

The RoHS Legislation and Technical Manual, first published by Newark InOne's sister distributor Farnell InOne in the UK, can also be accessed at www.rohs.info.
