It is mandatory for a product to be compliant with the directives of ROHS in order to be marketed in the European Market. ROHS certification is used for declaring that the electrical and electronic equipment manufactured by a company are free from lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP).

Third party ROHS Certification, providing sound traceability systems and strict enforcement of due diligence policies.
The European Directive on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) holds electrical and electronic equipment companies directly responsible for the chemical compliance of their products. It is mandatory for a product to be compliant with the directives of ROHS in order to be marketed in the European Market. The main reason behind this directive is to stop the pollution that is caused by such substances and prevent any occupational hazard for the workers working in an electronics company. The following substance come under the restriction directive and are banned to be used in electrical or electronics products such as lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP). When a company has the ROHS certification then it declares that all the products manufactures by them are free from any of the products mentioned above. The ROHS compliance is tested with the help of ROHS analyzer which are also called as X-ray Fluorescence and XRF metal analyzers which can easily screen and verify the ROHS compliance. Any company that manufactures the electrical for electronics products that are sold directly in the member countries of the European Union, must have an ROHS certificates. This is also applicable for the companies that provide products to the resellers and distributors that have direct selling in the European Union. The ROHS accreditation encourages the manufacturers that the products they design, develop and manufacture are perfectly eco friendly. When we are talking of the ROHS certification requirements, the most fundamental requirement of the certification is that the products must be free from any of the restricted substances stated in the directives.
The ROHS certification process includes the review of the documents such as Bill of materials of the products, assembly drawings, Declaration of material for every product and its components, conformance certificates and test reports. The entire process of manufacturing is inspected to check whether it meets the compliance to the ROHS directives. Once the audit of the documents, products and manufacturing process is done, the company is granted an ROHS certificate for the same product. This gives the manufacturers a chance to market their products in the EU countries freely. If a company wants to apply for the ROHS certification then Rohs Certification India is one of the best consultancy services that can help. Our consultants are dedicated to provide the best services to our clients with the minimum ROHS certification cost and also help them with the audit s and all along the certification process.
Benefits of ROHS
Increase of communication across the supply chain serves as a platform for the implementation of REACH and other initiatives.
Tighter process control, overall reduced number of defects and increased production efficiency (contradicts information appearing elsewhere in the report)
Increased skill levels in the global workforce due to retraining and the knowledge transfer to Asia and less developed countries (assumes that globalization is driven by RoHS). In addition, "Japanese people and knowledge are seeking inspiration in Europe and the US" (the condescension toward Japan is hard to understand given the statistics on innovation contained within the report).
Less leaching in landfills because WEEE contains less hazardous material and increased incentives for recycling because lead-free solder contains silver and gold
Pressure on other sectors (such as aerospace and IT industrial controls) and countries to move to cleaner processes and reduced use of hazardous materials (such as China RoHS and Korea RoHS)
Competitive advantage for EU manufacturers in markets where RoHS legislation is pending or contemplated
