RoHS Certification

Since the early 21st Century, electronic waste and chemicals use have become more common, like luminescence of radium or the low melting point of 60/40 lead-tin alloy. But about its harmful effects, no one was aware, how its unnecessary exposure was dangerous to human health as well as the environment. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people have developed health problems such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. The use of hazardous substances gave birth to the Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) in February 2003 by European Union. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006 and was required to be enforced and become law in each member state. RoHS restricted the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Their major motive behind this step is to reduce the use of harmful substances and reduce the environmental effect and health impacts of electronics.

RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances, which is also known as the Directive 2002/95/EC. It includes the restrictions for the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. RoHS is a WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment). In India, demand for electronic products is increasing widely, due to which the environment and human health are in danger. Furthermore, rapidly evolving technologies encourage consumers to discard electronic devices quickly, resulting in an alarming increase in the amount of electronic trash. Keeping this in consideration all the harmful effects of electronic waste, The Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) and the Government of India implemented the Restriction of Hazardous Substance, which in India is known as Electronic waste. Depending on the size of the Indian legal entity and the type of imported devices, you may be subject to WEEE or RoHS responsibilities if you produce or import electronic products in the Republic of India.

RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substance, and WEEE stands for Waste electrical and electronic equipment directive. These both are directives mostly applied to the same products, but each has its own rules, and also rules are according to the country. RoHS certification is valid for 5 years. Technically, no, however, items sold in the EU must follow the EU's REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) Directive. All RoHS-restricted compounds are also REACH-restricted. Thus if a product isn't RoHS-compliant, it's unlikely to be REACH-compliant as well.

RoHS Compliance FAQ. RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products (known as EEE). This means that equipment within its scope must carry a CE marking if it is offered for sale or placed on the market in the EU. All CE marking Directives also require that the product has a unique, traceable declaration of conformity. The prohibited materials are extremely hazardous to the environment and damage landfills. In terms of exposure during disposal and manufacture, these are genuinely dangerous. It's critical to choose a company that takes RoHS certification seriously and can provide you with ISO9001 certification for a RoHS-compliant manufacturing facility.
