RoHS certification

What does RoHS certification mean?

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) certification is an EU directive on hazardous substances. It makes it possible to protect human health and reduce the amount of hazardous substances penetrating into the environment - heavy metals and brominated flame retardants. RoHS 2002/95/EU has been in effect since July 1, 2006, and in Poland since March 27, 2007 as a result of a decree by the Minister of Economy.

On June 8, 2011, the European Parliament enacted a directive that amended the earlier arrangements. RoHS 2011/65/EU requires goods to be CE marked - a general conformity assessment system.

What solutions are restricted by RoHS?

  • lead (Pb),
  • mercury (Hg),
  • cadmium (Cd),
  • hexavalent chromium (CrVI),
  • polybrominated biphenyls (PBB),
  • polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE),
  • phthalates (DEHP, BBP, BBP, DIBP) - these were added in RoHS 3 in 2019.

The permissible concentration of the aforementioned substances is 0.1%.

How to get RoHS certification?

To obtain RoHS certification, it is necessary to obtain a certificate, which includes a certification that the manufactured products comply with the content of the regulation. Samples of such products are sent to a laboratory for testing. A positive evaluation entitles one to apply for certification with an accredited certification company.

MOGAMI was one of the first cable manufacturers to receive RoHS certification for all the cables it manufactures. To comply with the EU RoHS directive on the use of harmful substances, the ready made cables are soldered with a lead-free tin solder alloy with 4% silver Sn96Ag4.
