Lead Free Policy

  1. Wherever it is technically and commercially viable AEL will move its products to a lead free process that is compliant with international regulations and directives.
  2. Where a product is not able to be moved to a compliant process AEL will offer an alternative product which is compliant.
  3. Our intention is that all AEL products that are non compliant will be phased out over a period of time as customers stop using them.
