From July 1, 2006 manufactures of a wide range of electrical and electronic Equipment (EEE) must ensure that their products, parts and components sold in the EU do no contain lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated Biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (brominated flame retardants). There requirements apply under the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive 2002/95/EC. Careful planning and compliance strategies are required to minimize costs and maintain free circulation of your products throughout the EU. TCMS offers a comprehensive and practical management system to help you meet these requirements.
