Trade Agreements Act (TAA)
GSA Schedule Contracts are subject to the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), meaning all products listed on the GSA Schedule Contract must be manufactured or “substantially transformed” in the United States or a TAA “designated country”. We offer TAA-compliant optics and all of our optical solutions are United States and United Kingdom country of origin.
NEBS Level 3
We have successfully completed and passed the Network Equipment Bundling System (NEBS) compliance test through Intertek, a global industry leader in total quality assurance testing for products, processes and systems. ProLabs' SFO, XFP, and QSFP transceivers have undergone NEBS testing criteria for standards GR-63-CORE and GR1089-CORE. The North American telecom industry requires component solution providers to be NEBS compliant in order to ensure network integrity, compatibility, and safety.

Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) limits the use of hazardous substances in electronic equipment in European Union markets. The directive bans equipment containing more than the agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent, chromium, and polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) based flame retardants.
The European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) applies to a wide range of electronic and electrical products. WEEE encourages the collection, treatment, recycling and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment radio wave and magnetic fields more reasonably.
Multi-Source Agreement (MSA)
We follow general MSA standard coding practices. We modify appropriate fields based on form factor, technology type, capabilities, distance, wavelength, vendor name, part number, serial number, data, OUI, etc. and write data to EEPROM on each device.
