EU RoHS Test



What is RoHS?

RoHS refers to “Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances” in the EU Directive 2011/65/EU. It restricts the use of lead and other potentially hazardous substances including Cadmium, Mercury Chromium VI, PBBs and PBDEs contained in electrical and electronic products. RoHS limits these substances to 0.1% or 1,000 ppm (except for cadmium, which is limited to 0.01% or 100 ppm) by weight of homogenous material.

Without RoHS compliance, your electrical and electronics products may no longer be sold in Europe and countries adapted to the EU Directive.
