WEEE/RoHS Services

WEEE/RoHS Services

Get Your Electronics Products Compliant with Waste Directives

The WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive 2002/96/EC and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive 2002/95/EC are having an enormous impact on producers and distributors of electronic and electrical goods. If your products do not comply with these directives – aimed at the restriction of hazardous substances and waste – you could be banned from selling them on the European market.

To help you gain European approvals, TÜV Rheinland now offers labeling for WEEE / RoHS compliance. This allows system manufacturers to prove to the European Union (EU) that they are WEEE / RoHS compliant and are using RoHS-compliant components when manufacturing their products.
