3. There has been a community demand, backed in many cases by legislation, to reduce use of hazardous substances. The continued regulatory pressures to control waste has had a significant influence on product design, and the possible adoption of RoHS into Australia which is currently under investigation, will encourage designers to adopt benign materials where possible.
4. Overseas component suppliers have in general reduced hazardous material content

Suppliers have in many cases become RoHS compliant due to market forces. These include suppliers of electrical components such as timers, valves, switches and circuit boards. With the adoption of RoHS becoming more accepted, we expect this trend to continue. For example, the components listed in the previous dishwasher example have recently been made RoHS compliant at no cost penalty.
