RoHS Management helps electrical and electronic equipment manufacturers to control risks related to environmental regulations.

Conformity with regulations should be regarded as a licence to operate, an insurance, not as annoying extra work that makes your business difficult.

A prudent company thinks of business continuity and prepares in advance for constantly changing regulations.

We provide answers to material compliance questions, such as

  • RoHS II
  • China RoHS II
  • REACH
  • SVHC (updated twice a year)
  • Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM)
  • Halogen Free
  • Conflict Minerals
  • List of Prohibited and Restricted Substances

1. Compliance Management

RoHS Management creates a company the capability to take care of product compliance in daily operations.

We develop customer’s processes and organizational skills to a level, where new instructions and operational practices can be integrated as part of their certified ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental management system.

In a nutshell: we transform customer’s concern into a competitive advantage!

The customer can learn the necessary skills and capabilities to manage their product compliance independently in approximately 12-24 months after starting cooperation with RoHS Management.

Without the experience and assistance of RoHS Management this time is considerably longer, up to 6 years.

2. Monitoring regulations

Environmental regulations are constantly changing and tightening both in the EU and the rest of the world.

EU RoHS II and its national variants, such as China RoHS II, REACH and SVHC are a few examples of regulations that concern manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment.

It is already painstaking for companies to perceive existing environmental regulations, not to mention monitoring upcoming regulations and getting prepared for these changes.

European companies selling products on their domestic market must comply with national and EU regulations. Companies exporting their products must comply with practically all national and international regulations.

On top of that, many customers set additional requirements that the manufacturer should comply with.

RoHS Management monitors and actively identifies any changes to legislation and other applicable regulations on behalf of our customers.

3. Proof of Compliance

It is important for manufacturers to know which substances their product contains. Only by knowing substances can a question concerning prohibited and restricted substances be answered.

The need may arise from customer’s contractual requirements or from changing regulations.

Should the manufacturer not have a process to manage substance data, determining compliance may turn out to be an overwhelming task.

RoHS Management does have this process operational. We determine and report product compliance. All we need is the bill of materials.

Our process contains the following three steps:

1. Determine which regulations apply to the product

2. Determine which substances the product contains

3. Cross-check all substances with applicable regulations

As a result the customer receives a written report on product compliance.
