What's RoHS Compliance?

What is RoHS? The full name of RoHS is "Restriction of Hazardous Substances" (Restriction of Hazardous Substances). It was formally implemented on July 1, 2006, and is a mandatory standard established by EU legislation. It is mainly used to regulate the materials and process standards of electronic and electrical products, making it more conducive to human health and environmental protection. The purpose of this standard is to eliminate lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers in electrical and electronic products, and stipulate that the content of cadmium cannot exceed 0.01%.

RoHS Science

From July 22, 2019, 10 mandatory tests will be conducted. The ten harmful substances of RoHS are: lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), diethyl phthalate Hexylhexyl (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).

Electrical and electronic products that need to detect these ten hazardous substances mainly include: white goods, such as refrigerators, washing machines, microwave ovens, air conditioners, vacuum cleaners, water heaters, etc., black appliances, such as audio and video products, DVD, CD, TV receivers, IT Products, digital products, communication products, etc.; electric tools, electric electronic toys, medical electrical equipment.

It was first noticed that electrical and electronic equipment contains heavy metals that are harmful to human health. In 2000, the Netherlands discovered cadmium in cables of a number of game consoles sold in the market. In fact, the solders used extensively in the production of electrical and electronic products and the inks printed on packaging boxes all contain harmful heavy metals such as lead. Will cause great harm to the human body. If the product is not RoHS certified, it will cause incalculable damage to the environment and the human body.
