Understanding ROHS Directive

<p>The European Union along with many other nations has adopted a directive, the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (<strong><a href="http://www.enventureonline.com/">ROHS Directive</a></strong> , which will restrict the use of certain substances in electrical and electronic products, including lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and certain halide-containing flame retardants. The directive applies to all electrical and electronic products, and their component parts, placed on the market after 1st July 2006. <br /> <br /> One of the main reasons for developing and adopting the ROHS Regulation was that a large number of substances have been manufactured and placed on the market in Europe for many years, sometimes in very high amounts, and yet there is insufficient information on the hazards that they pose to human health and the environment. There is a need to fill these information gaps to ensure that industry is able to assess hazards and risks of the substances, and to identify and implement the risk management measures to protect humans and the environment. The RoHS regulation was employed to condense the amount of restricted materials in the waste stream. A supplier who extends a guarantee that his product is RoHS compliant takes on, by implication, potential liabilities attributable to his component and material vendors. To insure compliance, data on concentrations of the hazardous substances, needs to be transferred throughout the supply chain and across the manufacturing process. ROHS Directive and other similar efforts to reduce dangerous materials in electronics are motivated in part to address the global issue of consumer electronics misuse and mounting environmental pollution.<br /> <br /> For details Visit at <strong><a href="http://www.enventureonline.com/">Data Cleansing Solution</a></strong></p>
