Tin-lead and nickel plating outlawed in the US?

Hello Folks,

Got a big project done and goes into fab now. A surprise just popped up
where the turn-key fab house said they can't get boards tin-lead plated
and nickel-plated anymore. So we are going with gold immersion since
some areas are mechanically contacted and thus can't have HASL. The rest
could be HASL but that makes it complicated and black-pad isn't really
an issue these days anymore.

Did nickel-plating become totally outlawed by now? How about Canada and
other countries?

Regards, Joerg
