RoHS Services

On July 1, 2006, the European Union directives 2002/95/EC (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances – “RoHS” and 2002/96/EC (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment – “WEEE” will come into force. These directives regulate the disposal of used electronic and electrical devices and/or prohibit new equipment put on the market that contain lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr VI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and/or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). The proposed maximum concentration values (MCV) in a “homogeneous material” are as follows:

Hazardous Substances

Maximum Concentration Values

Lead (Pb)

0.1% of the weight    =  1000 mg/Kg  =  1000 ppm

Mercury (Hg)

0.1% of the weight    =  1000 mg/Kg  =  1000 ppm

Cadmium (Cd)

0.01% of the weight  =  100 mg/Kg    =    100 ppm

Hexavalent Chromium (Cr VI)

0.1% of the weight    =  1000 mg/Kg  =  1000 ppm


0.1% of the weight    =  1000 mg/Kg  =  1000 ppm

Note: “homogeneous materials” – a unit that cannot be mechanically disjoined into single materials.
