Eurasian Economic Union RoHS will come into force on March 1, 2018: Are you compliant with its requirements?

On 02, Feb 2018 | In News @en, RoHS | By Lisa Schmidt

The Technical Regulation of Eurasian Economic Union (former Customs Union) TR EEU 037/2016 „On restriction of use of hazardous substances in electric and radio-electronic equipment“ will enter into force on March 1, 2018: Its substance restrictions apply to Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) with identical thresholds as in the EU. The product scope and the list of exceptions are very similar but not identical with EU RoHS requirements.

The most important differences, however, can be stated on the level of personal scope, of conformity assessment and of marking and labelling. Before a product can be placed on EEU market, it has to undergo a specific conformity assessment procedure including registration and receive a EEU conformity mark. This procedure can be initiated by producer, importer or their authorized representative subject to special requirements.
