Why is RoHS compliance important?

1.What is RoHS?
RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products (known as EEE). All applicable products in the EU market after July 1,2006 must pass RoHS compliance.

2.What is the change with RoHS 2.0 for electrical and electronic products?
RoHS 2.0 has a wider test range than 1.0, addition of 4 phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP,DIBP) had been added to the existing 6 restricted substances.

3. Why is RoHS 2.0 compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling. Echeers insists on producing products with environmentally friendly materials, hence,all the materials of Echeers products are passed the RoHS 2 .0compliance.
