Taiwan RoHS – The Presence Conditions of the Restricted Substances
Starting July 1, 2017, BSMI certification includes the Taiwan RoHS marking requirement in the inspection standard for EEE. Implemented in stages, the changes mean the word “RoHS” must be included on CI MARK EEE products.
The implementation of Taiwan’s RoHS follows the publishing, in July 2013 by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI), of CNS 15663 – Guidance on the reduction of the restricted chemical substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This document set maximum concentration values (MCV) for six hazardous substances found in nine types of EEE. The Taiwan RoHS has MCV’s that are the same as those contained within the European Union’s (EU) RoHS, although it does not cover phthalates, which are included under EU regulations.
Taiwan RoHS covers:
Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6+)
Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)
Wire (H) VCTF and (H) VCTFK Restricted substances containment statement
