RoHS Test
The new version of the RoHS directive (2011/65/EU) became effective on July 21st, 2011. It implements strict regulations on 6 toxic and hazardous substances such as Pb, Hg, Cd, hexavalent Cr, PBB and PDBE used in electronics products. In the future, more substances may become regulated. Machines can claim CE marking only when they comply with the new version of RoHS directive. To address this issue, EU announced Guiding Standard EN50581 on January 16th, 2013 for compliance with RoHS CE technical documentation of electrical and electronics products.
