15-0331 v3.X Recycled Copper


After researching manufacturers for plumbing copper pipe, I have found one who has been responsive. However, they mentioned that the material contains trace amounts of Cadmium due to recycled material. The Material Handbook mentiones recycled steel containing trace amounts of red listed materials as an exception, but does not mention copper. Does recycled copper comply with Unintentional Trace Amounts clarification?


It is acceptable to use recycled copper pipe with unintentional trace amounts of Red List ingredients because those ingredients have not been intentionally added, per the v3.0 Materials Petal Handbook (MPH p. 10). Please include a statement from the manufacturer in your documentation, confirming the cadmium was not intentionally added.
