RoHS/WEEE Compliance Testing

Analytical testing dots RoHS/WEEE compliance testing

ALS Environmental has developed advanced analytical methodologies for RoHS/WEEE compliance testing. We offer a comprehensive analysis package to comply with RoHS/WEEE regulatory requirements. The procedures in place at ALS Environmental assure valid results are produced by applying specialized sample preparation techniques prior to analysis by the appropriate instrumental method.

 

RoHS/WEEE compliance is required of products imported to countries belonging to the European Union (EU).

What is RoHS and WEEE?

In 2003, legislation was introduced in the EU to promote the collection, treatment, recycling, and recovery of waste from electrical and electronic equipment. This legislation is known as the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Act and is formally dictated by directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament. A complimentary directive, the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), was also introduced in 2003 given by 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament. Beginning July 1, 2006, RoHS legislation restricts the amounts of lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium (VI), Polybrominated Diphenylethers (PBDEs), and Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBBs) in electronic and electrical equipment. These chemicals are known to present a risk to human health and the environment. Thus, restrictions are in place that limit the concentration of these constituents in electrical and electronic products and/or components.
