RoHS Compliant Testing
RoHS 2 has come into force since July 2011. From 3rd Jan 2013, cables will come under the scope of RoHS 2. RoHS 2 allows for CE marking for products complying with it.
The ‘Restricted Substances’ list remains the same (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers).
For a product to be RoHS compliant, testing has to be done as per EN/IEC 62321:2013.
Technical File has to be compiled as per EN 50581:2012.
Additionally, guidance is given in IEC standards IEC/TR 62476 for ‘how to evaluate the products’ and in IEC/PAS 62596 for ‘sampling procedure’.
Our testing methods are internationally accepted
- PBDE – with HPLC UV or GC MS
- Elemental Bromine by XRF
- Ionic Species (Cr+VI) UV VIS
- Elemental Analysis by XRF
