PoHS Test

PoHS (Prohibition on Certain Hazardous Substances in Consumer Products), issued by Norway and became effective on January 1st, 2008. While this law is only enforced in Norway, PoHS still may become the standard accepted by imports of consumer products to the EU since hardly any manufacturer will customize their products to comply with the regulations from one country.

PoHS covers a broader range of products than RoHS, which include almost all consumer products such as consumer electronics and appliances, clothes, buildings, and toys. This regulation does not apply to foods and their packaging, chemical fertilizers, medical equipments, cigarettes, transportation and its fixtures, tires and other transportation parts. Up to 18 types of substances are regulated in PoHS, only 2 of which (Pb and Cd) are included in the RoHS directive by EU. In order to comply with such strict regulations and clear the obstacles into the EU market, iST can assist the clients to conduct risk evaluation and related tests.
