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:

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!

TESTING » TESTED PRODUCTS

The marketing of toys and products for children under three years of age is regulated by harmonized European legislation as well as by national – Czech legislation. Until 19 July 2011, toys are subject to the European Directive 88/378/EEC, which shall – after that date – be replaced by Directive 2009/48/EC of 18 June 2009 on the safety of toys. Only such toys are allowed to enter the EU market, which are in consistence with this legislation and, pursuant to the new Directive, also bear the CE marking and are accompanied by an EC declaration of conformity. For products designed for children under three years of age (sold on the Czech market), which include also toys for children under three years of age, there is an obligation to comply with the requirements of Decree No. 84/2001 Coll. implementing Act No. 258/2000 Coll., on Public Health Protection. These products, at all trade levels except for retail trade, must always be accompanied by a written declaration confirming that the products comply with the hygienic requirements laid down by the Decree. Such declaration is to be issued by the manufacturer, importer or authorized representative based on a compliance assessment of the results of the product tests with the hygienic requirements laid down by the above-mentioned Decree.
