RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)

Certificate Description

The RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is a set of laws restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment in the European Union.

The RoHS Directive currently restricts the use of ten substances: lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).

All products with an electrical and electronic component, unless specifically excluded, have to comply with these restrictions.

The RoHS is developed and managed by the European Commission, the governmental organization responsible for shaping strategy, laws, and policies in the EU.
