NOTE:  EU WEEE/RoHS Requirements.  Additional Regulatory Compliance requirements apply to shipments into European Union (EU) countries.  Please follow this link (EU WEEE/RoHS Requirements) to understand how and where Cross Technologies products are compliant with these EU regulations.

Recognizing that the illegal diversion of high technology commodities and technical data to military, terrorist, or nuclear/missile/chemical weapons proliferation activities poses a serious risk to the national security of the United States, as well as other nations in which Cross Technologies, Inc. does business, and since export control regulations apply to virtually every aspect of our business, Cross Technologies has and will maintain a strict export control policy.
