Phillips Industries’ newest issue of Qwik Tech Tips addresses RoHS compliance.
“Originating in Europe under European Union law, as Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances and restricts the use of six specific hazardous materials (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, phthalates) and four phthalates (bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate, benzyl butyl phthalate, dibutyl phthalate, and diisobutyl phthalate),” Phillips Industries says.
“RoHS compliance can have an affect on everyone from the manufacturer, to the buyer and seller, all the way down the chain to the end user. From a commerce perspective, anyone doing business with those under European Law will be required to meet RoHS compliance with goods being exported, and visa versa, goods being imported from Europe will also meet these requirements.”
