1. WEEE & RoHS background
On February 13, 2003, the official journal of the European Union officially released two new directives in the field of environmental protection:
Directive 2002 / 96 / EC waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) waste electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive
Directive 2002 / 95 / EC Restriction of the use of certified hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment
2. Purpose of WEEE Directive
Reduce the amount of waste electronic and electrical equipment, promote the reuse, regeneration and recovery of waste electronic and electrical equipment, minimize the residual waste, and improve the environmental protection effect of the whole process from manufacturing to waste of electronic and electrical equipment.
3. Scope of WEEE
The discarded equipment includes "electronic and electrical equipment" or "EEE" refers to the equipment designed to use the voltage of AC not more than 1000V and DC not more than 1500V, which needs to rely on the current or electronic magnetic field for normal operation and the equipment to realize the generation, transmission and measurement of these current and magnetic field. Including all components, accessories and consumable materials of the product, all applicable to the following ten categories of products, excluding military equipment.
4. Equipment classification of WEEE instruction
Large household appliances, small household appliances, information technology and telematics equipment, consumer equipment, user lighting equipment -- except white baking light bulbs and home lighting sources, electronic and electrical tools -- except large fixed industrial tools, toys, leisure and sports equipment, medical equipment -- except implanted parts or pollution places, monitoring facilities, vending machines, etc.
A brief introduction to the directive of limiting the use of hazardous substances
According to the requirements of WEEE Directive, it is very necessary to collect, treat, reuse, discard and other measures for waste management caused by heavy metals and flame retardants. Despite the corresponding measures, the vast majority of waste equipment will be discarded in the current way. Even if the waste equipment is collected and recycled, harmful substances are still dangerous to human health and the environment.
RoHS complements the WEEE Directive and runs in parallel with WEEE. From July 1, 2006, new electronic and electrical equipment put on the market will not be allowed to use lead (excluding lead in high-temperature melting solder, i.e. solder containing more than 85% lead), mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium (excluding hexavalent chromium contained in anti-corrosion carbon steel of cooling system as refrigeration device), PBB, PBDE, etc Matter or element.
WEEE & RoHS integrated certification process and method
The following are precautions for application of product integration report service:
1、 Premise: the components (single material) of the product have been tested (refer to the list provided by the customer) and the parts that have not been tested will be tested after completion.
2、 Materials to be provided by the customer:
1. Two finished samples for checking the report.
2. All copies of the test report on the list (the handwriting is clear, the report within one year issued by the national recognized certification body is invalid for more than one year, and needs to be retested) shall be stamped with the official seal of the company applying for the integrated test, and stamped with the official seal, the statement of conformity and other supporting materials.
3. Complete the integration test application form and letter of guarantee, indicate the type of report (Chinese or English), and provide the corresponding Chinese and English on the report.
4. Bill of materials (BOM).
5. Simple sectional view of finished product structure (recommended for verification).
6. Provide a list of product test reports.
Note: all reports provided by the customer shall be sent to the laboratory for integration after being sorted out. If any false report is found, the laboratory shall terminate all audit work. The customer shall provide the data related to the payment test of the corresponding samples again. After the results are measured, the review of the finished product report will be started again. The audit time required for the report begins to be recalculated. If the customer is not willing to test, the laboratory will return all the data and will not integrate them.
