RoHS & Reach Testing

The basis for RoHS and REACH substance restrictions are quite different. RoHS restrictions are based on hazards – if a substance is hazardous and there are alternatives, then it could be banned. REACH restrictions are introduced only if a risk to human health or the environment can be proven, it cannot be controlled and substitutes exist.

RoHS restricts the use of the following six substances:
• Lead (Pb)
• Mercury (Hg)
• Cadmium (Cd)
• Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6+)
• Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
• Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE)
