RoHS Q&A

These are General Cable’s responses to questions on the European Union (EU) Directive
on the Restriction of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) that bans the use of certain
materials in electrical and electronic equipment after July 2006.

General Cable is pleased to announce that our non-plenum electronic products are in
compliance with the European Union (EU) Directive on the Restriction of certain
Hazardous Substances (RoHS). In addition, General Cable continues to convert many of
our plenum electronics products, although they are exempt from the EU Directive. For a
complete list of compliant products, please refer to the RoHS section of the new General
Cable Web site.

Like all global environmental initiatives that may affect wire and cable products, our
European and North American Technology Teams continue to review and make
recommendations to our Corporate Leadership Team so they may develop strategies and
product development actions to meet the needs of our customers.

If you have specific technical questions related to a wire and cable product you currently
buy from General Cable, please provide the product description, part number, end-use
application, and market details to your General Cable representative. He or she will
review it with the appropriate person on our Technology Team and provide a response.
