The RoHS Directive imposes restriction on the maximum level in the usage of six hazardous materials, namely Cadmium, Mercury, Lead, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB), Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) and Hexavalent Chromium (CrVI) in the manufacturing of electronic and electrical equipment.

The RoHS Directive is complimented by the WEEE Directive which sets specifications for the collection, recycling and recovery criteria for electrical/electronic goods. The directives are part of a legislative initiative to control the emission and disposal of toxic electronic wastes. As such, to avoid complications and minimize financial and administrative burden that the legislation may result, product testing and certification for compliance is necessary.

Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Certification / RoHS Compliance Program

SPADE's RoHS Compliance and Certification Program aims to help producers meet the strict requirements of RoHS compliance and RoHS standard (EU RoHS and China RoHS), as well as take corrective actions when necessary to meet the requirement for the maximum concentration of substances permitted. The RoHS Certification Program employs individuals with genuine legislative and component expertise who are capable of resolving the most challenging hazardous material regulations.

Our services ranges from Restricted Substances Consultation, product testing to certification and compliance assurance. The RoHS Certification Program is a single product certification which can be extended for the certification of a product series, as long as the range of products are produced using the same raw materials. RoHS certificates (RoHS label or RoHS mark) are valid for up to 5 years.
