Your more detailed questions answered

What will the transition to Lead Free mean for my business?

Phoenix is committed to transitioning affected products to Lead Free with our partners. The phase-out of current products and introduction of Lead Free alternatives will occur over the coming months, aiming to have all Phoenix Lead Free product available by the end of 2025, prior to the official cut-off date of May 2026. We anticipate resolving stockholding matters by that date and encourage merchants to discuss intentions and concerns with their Account Manager.

How will we order Phoenix Lead Free products once they have transitioned to Lead Free?

Phoenix product codes will have a -1 at the end to indicate that they are a certified Lead Free product with the new Lead Free Watermark trademark.  As a result, products will have a new code, and a new EAN Barcode that will require updating on all systems, specifications, orders and websites. The introduction of this code will enable better logistical management of the Phoenix Lead Free roll out.

In addition to this, please note we will also be simultaneously updating our alpha finish codes (i.e. CHR, MB etc) to our numeric finish codes (i.e. -00, -10,-40 etc) as the relevant products transition to Lead Free

For example –

Product Name Current Product Code Proposed Lead Free Code
Arlo Vessel Mixer 151-7900-00 151-7900-00-1
Vido Flexible Hose Sink Mixer 113-7110-00 113-7110-00-1
Cromford Sink Mixer 134-7330-12 134-7330-12-1
Vivid Slimline Sink Mixer 220mm Gooseneck VS733 CHR VS733-00-1
Vivid Slimline Basin Mixer VS770 CHR VS770-00-1

Please note, that in the transition to Lead Free Tapware & Mixers, WELS ratings will not change.
