ITC services regarding ROHS 3

Since July 22, 2019 „RoHS 3“ (2015/863/EC) updated of so called “RoHS 2” directive (No. 2011/65/EC) will come in force, laying down extended requirements on electric and electronic devices.

Except for heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Hg, Cr VI+) and polybrominated flame retardants (PBBs and PDEs) four phthalic acid esters (phthalates) were newly added:
Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, Butyl benzyl phthalate, Di butyl phthalate a Di iso butyl phthalate in the amount, not exceeded 0,1 w/w % in mass of homogenous material.
Problematic can be thus PVC softened material, like cable insulations then paintings, glues and softened plastics.

Laboratories of ITC are ready to determine all these substances. Years of experiences with such a type of analysis gives you quality assurance regarding analysis results. For request, please, contact:

Online access to Toyota standard database

Upon agreement with TOYOTA company Institute for Testing and Certification, inc. got direct access to the database of Toyota standards, which are relevant to testing of automotive components, intended to TOYOTA cars. We believe that this step forward helps to perform better services towards you – our clients.

For physical tests, please, contact:

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2020/1245 of 2nd September 2020 amending and correcting Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food entered into force on 23rd September 2020

This regulation has significantly changed the scope of evaluation of elements and primary aromatic amines and the way of evaluation of articles for repeated use – HERE you can find more information. ITC labs are already prepared to test and evaluate the articles according to new rules.

MORE INFORMATION


new ICP spectrometer in ITC labs

Analytical laboratory has recently purchased new ICP spectrometer Agilent 5800. The spectrometer is intended for determination of elements in water solutions, leachates and mineralisates. It is used mainly for evaluation of food-contact materials, products for children, material analysis of plastics, rubbers and metals. Spectrometer can be also used for determination of elements, which are limited in electro-products by RoHS 3 directive. High sensitivity enable evaluation of products according to many national and European legislations.  


DETERMINATION OF INDIVIDUAL ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE EMITTED COMPOUNDS BY GC-MS/FID

In autumn 2019 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased gas chromatograph Shimadzu GCMS QP 2020 NX with mass spectromecter and flame ionization detector, which is used for analysis of emission of organic substances (VOC) mainly for automotive materials.

Determination of VOC by this method meets the requirements:
- VW 50180 (CLP classification of VOC emission in accordance with Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 included)
- PV 3341
- VDA 277
- VCS 1027,2759


Laboratory is on the List of accepted service laboratories by the VW Group for test according to PV 3341!

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.

 


Manual for clients

       

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.
