The product is divided into single material and homogeneous material and then tested. Among them, six harmful substances such as lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) meet the requirements of the RoHS directive. Restriction standards: cadmium: 0.01% (100PPM); lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) 0.01% (1000PM).

Contents of RoHS test


1. Lead (Pb)


2. Cadmium (Cd)


3. Mercury (Hg)


4. Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+)


5. Polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs)


6. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)


The content of the six harmful substances in the above homogeneous substances cannot exceed the limit value, of which cadmium is 0.01%, and the rest is 0.1%.


RoHS report validity period


Europe does not strictly stipulate the validity period of the RoHS report. If the RoHS report standard has not been updated and the product has not changed, everyone defaults to one year for the RoHS report industry category.


Information required for RoHS testing


1: Prepare samples for testing, such as 50g-100g/sample of a single material, the sample of the whole machine needs to communicate with our customer service for confirmation.


2: Fill in the test application form, mainly fill in: the full name of the company, company address, sample name, sample model and all the information that should be reflected in the report.


According to the requirements of EU WEEE&RoHS Directive, AOV is to disassemble the product according to the material, and use different materials to detect harmful substances. In general:


*Metal materials need to test four harmful metal elements such as (Cd cadmium/Pb lead/Hg mercury/Cr6+hexavalent chromium)


* In addition to checking these four harmful heavy metal elements, plastic materials also need to detect brominated flame retardants (polybrominated biphenyls PBB/polybrominated diphenyl ethers PBDE)


*At the same time, packaging materials of different materials also need to be tested for heavy metals in packaging materials (94/62/EEC)
