All kinds of electric and electronic products which are produced in or imported to the European market are as a point of reference comprised by the RoHS regulation which imposes demands as to the content of deleterious chemicals.
The following chemicals have been listed in the regulation: Lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)), polybromated biphenyl (PBB) and polybromated diphenylether (PBDE).
Avoid cancellation and denigration
As producer, importer or agent you are responsible for the fact that the products comply with the regulations and do not contain illegal chemicals. The RoHS regulation applies to components too, which are to be used as spare parts in electrical products and electronics.
Non-compliance of the rules might cause great costs for you as to withdrawal from the market, bad publicity and possible prosecution in connection with non-compliance of the law. Therefore, it is important that you have documentation showing that your products do meet the rules in the RoHS regulation.
