Instrumental and sampling requirements for RoHS

Requirements for RoHS Compliance poster

Technical poster examines the threshold levels, recommended steps for RoHS compliance, verification methods, testing challenges, and more

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has published a new poster, 'Instrumental and Sampling Requirements for RoHS Compliance'.

The production of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) continues to be one of the fastest growing manufacturing sectors in the world.

Technological advancements and market expansion have resulted in increasing levels of product replacement and increasing levels of waste.

Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is a priority waste stream of the European Community, because of the estimated growing volume of WEEE and because of the potential hazardous nature of EEE following its disposal.

The RoHS Directive, complementing the WEEE Directive, restricts the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and two brominated flame retardants, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in the manufacture of new EEE to be put on the European Market from 1 July 2006.

Although the regulations started in Europe, they are having world-wide effects.

This poster examines the threshold levels, recommended steps for RoHS compliance, verification methods, testing challenges, and more.
