RoHS compliance testing

This page describes RoHS compliance testing and RoHS compliance test procedure. RoHS full form is Restriction of Hazardous Substances.

The RoHS compliance testing is a standard procedure for testing the product to determine compliance requirements in the manufactured product. The requirement helps protect human health and environment from hazardous substances. This can be achieved by limiting following 6 hazardous chemicals in the manufactured products.
• Mercury(Hg)
• Lead(Pb)
• Hexavalent Chromium (Cr(VI))
• Cadmium (Cd)
• Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
• Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)

RoHS has limited max. allowed concentration values for the mentioned substances. All substances will have values of about 0.1% with exception of cadmium which will be about 0.01%.

Following RoHS compliance test procedure is followed for testing any electrical, electronics and RF (Radio frequency) products.

RoHS compliance test procedure

The testing is performed as per test procedure outlined in IES 62321:2008. The test procedure determines levels of regulated substances in electro-technical products. The methods are as follows:
•  Screening by XRF spectroscopy
• Wet Chemical Test Method
-Determination of Lead, Cadmium and Mercury -Determination of Hexavalent Chromium by Colorimetric method -Determination of PBBs and PBDEs by GC/MS
