Testing of hydraulic brake hose assemblies by Standard SAE J1401

Institute for testing and certification offers a new service in a field of automotivetesting of Hydraulic Brake Hose Assemblies by Standard SAE J1401. For detailed informations please contact our expert from Physical Testing Laboratory mr. Radek Matejka rmatejka@itczlin.cz.


New method for determination of organometallic complexes

Our analytical laboratory has implemented new method for determination of organometallic complexes (i.e. alkyl mercury) by cation chromatography, coupled to ICP-MS detection. This group of substances is represented for example by Trimerosal, used as fungicide or fungistatic agent. Such a substances can be limited for example in vaccines or contact lens solutions. Contact: Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry, fpuype@itczlin.cz, analyt@itczlin.cz


Determination of crack bridging properties

Laboratory of building materials has introduced new test device for test according to EN 1062-7 for “Determination of crack bridging properties”. On this device also another tests of paints, varnishes, coating materials and coating systems can be performed, list of standards is attached in this note. contact: rmikac@itczlin.cz


RoHS, Waste

Testing » Tested products

In accordance with the applicable legislation in force, waste materials are assessed, analysed and classified in order to ensure that its handling does not result in permanent damage to the environmental interests. Regulation of waste toxicity is also related to the RoHS Directive defining the rules for the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, in order to reduce risks for the period when an article becomes waste.

WASTE ASSESSMENT

  • Waste assessment pursuant to Act No. 185/2001 Coll., on Waste, as amended
  • Leach tests according to the relevant decrees implementing the Waste Act
  • Analyses of solid waste according to the requirements of Decree No. 383/2001 Coll., as amended

ITC SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH THE ROHS DIRECTIVE:

  • What is RoHS?
    • Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is based on the DIRECTIVE 2002/95/EC of the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The Directive imposes an obligation on the manufacturers/importers of electrical and electronic equipment in categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 to ensure that any electrical and electronic equipment put to the market after 30 June 2006 does not contain selected toxic substances.
  • List of forbidden substances
    • Cadmium
    • Mercury
    • Lead
    • Hexavalent chromium
    • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
    • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)
    • Decabromdiphenyl ether
  • What products are subject to RoHS?
    • RoHS requirements apply to final products falling under the scope of this Directive. This means that all components and component combinations within an assembly sub-category may not contain any of the forbidden substances at a level exceeding the maximum concentration.
      • Household electrical appliances
      • Telecommunication and computer equipment
      • Consumer electronics
      • Lighting equipment
      • Power tools
      • Toys, sports equipment
      • Automatic dispensers
      • Light bulbs
      • All electrical and electronic equipment with a voltage rating under 1,000 V (please note that there are exceptions)
  • RoHS2
    • The scope of RoHS o RoHS2 has been expanded since 2011 (Directive 2011/65/EU of European Parlament and of the council from 8th July 2011,) which has same limits as RoHS, only expands groups of products about:
    • Medical devices (valid from 2014)
    • In-vitro diagnostic medical devices (valid from 2016)
    • Monitoring and control equipment (valid from 2014)
    • Industrial and measuring equipment (valid from 2014)
    • All electrical and electronic equipment not covered by any categories mentioned above (valid from 2019)
    •  
  • List of restricted substances
    • Cadmium (0,01%)
    • Mercury (0,1%)
    • Lead (0,1%)
    • Hexavalent chromium (0,1%)
    • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) (0,1%)
    • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) (0,1%)
    • Decabromdiphenyl ether
    • Exceptions are given in the annex No.IV of the directive, annex No.2 Government order
      No. 481/2012 Sb.
    •  
  • Responsibilities
    • A new directive introduces a wide range of procedures and responsibilities as it´s conformity assessment of products with basic directive requirements, CE marking, conformity statement, identification and rating of the product, administration of technical documentation for 10 years and proving of compliance testing or rating in accordance with harmonized standards.

    • The manufacturer of equipment must ensure that his products do not include six restricted substances. Directive does not edit a production of individual components and spare parts. The manufacturer must ensure that none of the components his product do not contain restricted substances.
    •  
    • Although RoHS directives are valid only for EU, manufactures of electrical and electronic equipment outside the EU have same responsibility if their products are imported by individual EU countries.
