RoHS Certification

RoHS is a European Union based directive that has shaken the worldwide electronics industry. In short, RoHS insists that certain substances of very high concern — like cadmium, lead, and mercury — be restricted in the manufacture of electronics and electronic devices. RoHS was fully implemented by the European Union (EU) in 2006.

The European Directive on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) holds electrical and electronic equipment companies directly responsible for the chemical compliance of their products. This means all products must conform to strict standards, provide extensive compliance documentation, and ensure that electrical and electronic products sold in the EU do not contain lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) above the legal threshold. Manufacturers, owners, retailers, and importers alike essential to confirm that their products comply in order to be distributed and sold in the EU.
