What is RoHS Certification?

ROHS refers to the Restriction of Hazards Substances within Electrical and Electronic Equipments. The RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU bans the usage of hazardous substances beyond the agreed levels of Lead(Pb), Cadmium(Cd), Mercury, Hexavalent chromium (CR VI), Polybrominated biphenyl (PBBs) (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl (PBDEs) flame retardants. EU Directive 2015/863 added four new restricted substances such as Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl Butyl Phthalate (BPP), Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Diisobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) to be used in the adequate proportion as prescribed by the regulation. Benzyl Butyl Phthalate (BPP) and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) will need to comply by July 22, 2021, in the hazardous list by limiting the scope of usage.

The Directive on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) holds companies directly responsible for the chemical compliance of their products beyond the allowable amounts of the following restricted materials. This means all products before entering the market need to conform to strict standard compliance to make them reliable and safe for usage. The products or equipment mandatorily apply to RoHS Directives are listed as Large household appliances, Consumer electronics, Lighting equipment, Power tools, Automatic dispensers Computing & communications equipment, medical devices and equipment and, etc.

The main purpose of using Restriction of Hazards Substances (RoHS) is to prevent the environment from such substances to create less pollution in landfills, during recycling, etc. Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) 2002/96/EC sets recycling and recovery targets to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste. Both RoHS and WEEE are interlinked as a part of the legislative. The standard applies to all the manufacturers who need to also pass the requirements of WEEE along with RoHS to get entry into the market.
