(RoHS) is a set of EU regulations that implements EU Directive 2002/95 that restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. This directive bans placing on the EU market, any product having an electrical/electronic component containing more than thresholds set for lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.
RoHS affects any company importing goods containing electrical components into the European Union. IQS Laboratory Testing can help you prepare, implement and comply with RoHS regulations. Our testing services allow you to place your products with confidence on the targeted markets. To learn more about our mandatory third-party testing and certification of a wide range of products, please complete the Need More Information form on the right.
