ROHS Certification ConsultantsRestriction of Hazardous Substances (ROHS Certification]
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EU (ROHS) became effective January 2, 2013. In accordance with ROHS, the ROHS Directive now applies to products in previously excluded electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) categories 8 and 9 (medical devices and monitoring and control instruments). However, ROHS deals with the same hazardous substances and the same maximum concentration limits as Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS1). Therefore, all products that were compliant with the substance restrictions of ROHS1 remain compliant with the substance restrictions of ROHS.
Like ROHS1 which was enacted to improve environmental quality, ROHS restricts the use of the following six substances (four heavy metals and two brominated flame retardants) in equipment distributed to member states of the European Union.
1. Lead (Pb) 0.1%
2. Mercury (Hg) 0.1%
3. Cadmium (Cd) 0.01%
4. Hexavalent Chromium (Cr VI) 0.1%
5. Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) 0.1%
6. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) 0.1%
