The RoHS-3 directive enters into force

RoHS directives restrict the use of defined hazardous substances in electrical equipment and electronic components.

On 22 July 2019, the third revision of the EU Directive of the European Parliament 2015/863 comes into force. This directive, called RoHS-3 (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), extends the definition of certain hazardous substances.

The aim of the Directives is to eliminate problematic components from electronic equipment. The electrical components and components used must also be free of the hazardous substances themselves. Companies that import such products or distribute them within the EU are obliged to comply with the regulations.

Beginning in July 2019, manufacturers of electronic equipment must ensure that their products comply with the third revision of the RoHS-3 Directive. The only exceptions are medical systems and monitoring and control instruments. Revision 3 adds four new substances to the existing six hazardous substances. These are located in the phthalates area, which can be found in almost all areas of life. The widely used plastic plasticizer is contained in a variety of electrical products and can cause health problems.

This limitation poses a challenge for many industries that have to replace existing materials with phthalate-free components. For several years, smart-TEC has procured raw materials and components exclusively from tested and approved suppliers and partners who can submit test reports.

As a quality supplier for RFID and NFC solutions you are welcome to contact us. Upon request, we will issue the new confirmation of RoHS-3 conformity for your company.
