RoHS at first stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS compliance testing also known as RoHS directive testing 2002/95/EC has now become a standard procedure for most of the manufacturers, distributors, authorized representatives, recyclers and sellers of electronic equipment or components and electrical substances used or sold in the European Union.
The RoHS compliance testing is important and needed because of some restricted materials which are hazardous to the environment and tends to pollute landfills which are dangerous and harmful in respect of occupational exposure in course of manufacturing and recycling. These hazardous chemicals which are banned in electronic products and electrical under RoHS are
RoHS is a product level compliance that depends on the European Union’s Directive 2002/95/EC, for the restriction for the use of some hazardous substances in electronic equipment and electrical. Any business which sells or distributes the applicable EEE products, components, cables or sub-assemblies to EU countries or selling the same to distributors and resellers that in further sell the products to European Union countries, is hit and influenced if the products utilize any of restricted materials.
RoHS 2, established in July 2011 by European Commission, expanded the original RoHS (2002) to cover all electronic components from spare parts to casing and cabling. RoHS 2 needed that EEE manufacturers tend to conduct conformity assessment and then prepare declarations of conformity, affixing CE markings on final products to explain compliance.
RoHS 3 of Directive 2015/863 further adds four restricted substances to the original list cited under REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals). From July 2019, DEHP, DIBP, DBP and BBP which are used in terms of plasticizers to soften plastics are restricted for all electronic equipment.
RoHS compliance testing is important for the companies who wish to sell their electronic equipment in the European Union market, on that account any third party testing agency can ensure the testing of products for the same requirement and are compliant with all the legislation required.
RoHS compliance testing is an important procedure if companies wish to sell any electrical on the European Electronic Area (EEA) and EU markets.
RoHS CE mark is an essential requirement to sell any product; it is illegal to sell any product in the EU market without having this mark.
A RoHS CE mark tends to give regulators and consumers confidence that the product is safe and free of any harm. Compliance testing helps to discover problems and avoid heavy fines and expensive product recalls.
