Overview of RoHS 2 Certification
What is RoHS 2 Certification? As the amount of waste from electrical and electronic components, equipment, and tools increases, standards for the determination of hazardous substances contained in these products become even more important.
The following numeric categories apply:
- Large household appliances
- Small household appliances
- IT & telecommunications equipment (although infrastructure equipment is exempt in some countries)
- Consumer equipment
- Lighting equipment – including light bulbs
- Electronic and electrical tools
- Toys, leisure, and sports equipment
- Medical devices (exemption removed in July 2011)
- Monitoring and control instruments (exemption removed in July 2011)
- Automatic dispensers
- Semiconductor devices
RoHS is often referred to as the “lead-free directive,” but it restricts the use of the following ten substances:
- Lead (Pb)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Cadmium (Cd)
- Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+)
- Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
- Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)
- Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
- Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP)
- Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
- Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)
2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)
The RoHS 2 directive (2011/65/EU) is an evolution of the original directive and became law on 21 July 2011 and took effect on 2 January 2013. It addresses the same substances as the original directive while improving regulatory conditions and legal clarity. It requires periodic re-evaluations that facilitate gradual broadening of its requirements to cover additional electronic and electrical equipment, cables and spare parts.The CE logo now indicates compliance and RoHS 2 declaration of conformity is now detailed
2015/863 RoHS 2 amendment
Add four additional substances are
Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP)
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)
The maximum permitted concentrations in non-exempt products are 0.1%.
RoHS 2 Certification of AtMet dunnage bag
AtMet dunnage bag
Products are manufactured by AtMet Inc, headquartered in Atlanta, USA and have sales branches in China, Singapore, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand.
Currently, AtMet insert air bags are being manufactured in AtMet’s modern factory located in China (since 1995) with strict quality control process. AtMet Group Inc is also a company focused on Product Protection and Damage Prevention.
AtMet dunnage bags have obtained many international certifications, including RoHS 2 Certification.
- RoHS helps reduce damage to people and the environment in third-world countries where much of today’s “high-tech waste” ends up. The use of lead-free solders and components reduces risks to electronics industry workers in prototype and manufacturing operations. Contact with solder paste no longer represents the same health hazard as it used to.
- Although lead containing solder cannot be completely eliminated from all applications today, AMD engineers have developed effective technical solutions to reduce lead content in microprocessors and chipsets to ensure RoHS compliance while minimizing costs and maintaining product features. There is no change to fit, functional, electrical or performance specifications. Quality and reliability standards for RoHS compliant products are expected to be identical compared to current packages.
- RoHS and other efforts to reduce hazardous materials in electronics are motivated in part to address the global issue of consumer electronics waste. As newer technology arrives at an ever-increasing rate, consumers are discarding their obsolete products sooner than ever. This waste ends up in landfills and in countries like China to be “recycled.”
