• RoHS Directives (2011/65/EU and (EU) 2015/863) (3rd party test report is available)
RoHS 2002/95/EC (Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment), is effective from July 1, 2006, and requires that six hazardous substances such as lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) should not be contained in electrical and electronic equipment on the EU market.
2011/65/EU (ROHS2.0) was officially issued on July 1, 2011 and implemented on January 3, 2013, replacing ROHS Directive 2002/95/EC.
RoHS2.0 (EU) 2015/863 is amending Directive of 2011/65/EU, which must be used in conjunction with the original directive. The directive was published on June 4, 2016. The main content is to delete the candidate substances in 2011/65/EU and to add four new substances (DEHP, DBP, BBP, DIBP) that must be tested and to increase the scope of electronic appliances (medical equipment and monitoring equipment). The directive is implemented on July 22, 2019 (medical devices and monitoring devices are implemented on July 22, 2021, and it means that they are not required to meet RoHS requirements before July 22, 2021).
SGMICRO has completed the investigation, verification and testing work prior to this period, and can sure compliance with the regulatory requirements to meet customer needs within the specified time. For ROHS products, we add "RoHS" logo on the label.
• Halogen Free (3rd party test report is available)
All products have used halogen free materials from the beginning of 2009 (Br≦900ppm, Cl≦900ppm, Cl+Br1500ppm). For halogen free products, we add "HF" logo on the label.
• REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) Declaration
In accordance with REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals, EC 1907/2006), based on the supply chain material information, we confirm that the products don't have volatile substances or intentionally released substances, and they are not chemicals which are directly exported to the EU, so we don't involve pre-registration. In addition, the products don't use any substances in the current SVHC candidate list, and meet the requirement of the content less than 0.1%. With REACH SVHC list updated, if the content greater than 0.1% is confirmed in the products and the total export volume is up to 1 ton/year, the substance cannot be replaced, SGMICRO Will inform customers and provide necessary information according to REACH requirements.
The latest published SVHC list (expanded to contain a total of 233 substances, the last updated on Jan 2023) can be found online from ECHA website: http://echa.europa.eu/
• Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive 94/62/EC and its supplementary Directive 2004/12/EC
Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive 94/62/EC and its supplementary Directive 2004/12/EC were published on December 31, 1994 and February 11, 2004 respectively. The directive requires the sum of heavy metal contents such as lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) and hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) in packaging not exceed 100ppm.
• Other additional substances concern
(Red) phosphorus: SGMICRO does not use molding compounds containing red phosphorous as the flame retardant, and stipulates that the total phosphorus content of its relevant sub-cons is less than 1000ppm.
Sb2O3: SGMICRO does not use molding compounds containing Sb2O3 as the flame retardant, and stipulates that the total antimony content of its relevant sub-cons is less than 700ppm.
Directive 2006/122/EC: all products and raw materials of SGMICRO do not use PFOS and PFOA.
PAHs: based on the supply chain investigation, SGMICRO confirms that maybe there are impurities in molding compounds. SGMICRO stipulates that its relevant sub-cons shall be controlled according to the sum of less than 50ppm.
