RoHS Certification – Are You RoHS Compliant?
Is your business compliant with the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in EEE (RoHS) Regulations
Whether you are starting from scratch or looking for advice on your existing RoHS processes we have a range of services that can be tailored to your needs.
The Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in EEE (RoHS) Regulations came into force in the UK in 2006 with the aim of restricting the use of certain substances in the manufacture of various types of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in order to prevent damage to human health and the environment.
Which businesses are affected?
An organisation is affected by RoHS if it:
- manufactures electrical and electronic equipment
- imports electrical and electronic equipment
- distributes electrical and electronic equipment
Are you obligated under the RoHS Regulations?
There are several options available to ensure that your business is compliant with RoHS, including:
Producers can arrange for their products to be tested in order to assess levels of restricted substances. Undertaking regular product testing is the most comprehensive approach a company can take to demonstrate their compliance with these regulations.
Producers can request a Declaration of Conformity from the manufacturer of each product or component.
Recent changes to the RoHS Directive means that it has been brought into scope of the CE Marking Directive. This means all products that are required to be RoHS compliant should have the CE Mark on them.
You should use ‘due diligence’ to implement the most relevant compliance process.

Valpak and its partner companies have provided us with the support we require in relation to REACH & RoHS compliance.
