EU RoHS Directive
The EU RoHS Directive is short for the "restriction of use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment."
The EU RoHS Directive (2011/65/ EU) restricts the use of specific hazardous substances for new electrical and electronic equipment marketed in the EU.
The Directive (EU) 2015/863 amending 2011/65/EU was published in 2015 to restrict the use of specific hazardous substances, including six conventional substances *1, as well as four substances (phthalate compounds)*2.
Our products (LED lighting, power supplies, and some optional products) do not contain the below hazardous substances in excess of the maximum permitted concentration. However, this does not apply if the product falls under the exemption.
*1: (1) lead, (2) mercury, (3) cadmium, (4) hexavalent chromium, (5) polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), (6) polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)
*2: (7) bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), (8) butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), (9) dibutylphthalate (DBP), (10) diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)
Standards for "RoHS Directive-Compliant Products"
|Specific Hazardous Substances in EU RoHS Directive||Maximum Permitted Concentration|
|Lead (Pb)||1000 ppm|
|Mercury (Hg)||1000 ppm|
|Cadmium (Cd)||100 ppm|
|Hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI))||1000 ppm|
|Polybrominated biphenyl (PBB)||1000 ppm|
|Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)||1000 ppm|
|Bis (2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP)||1000 ppm|
|Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP)||1000 ppm|
|Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)||1000 ppm|
|Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)||1000 ppm|
CCS Green Purchasing Guidelines
At CCS, we have further expanded on the applicable substances listed in the RoHS Directive to establish the "CCS Green Purchasing Guidelines," as a standard for the proactive purchasing of parts and materials, etc., in an environmentally conscious manner.
Through these guidelines, we have established efforts related to the reduction of the environmental load of purchased goods, and we are dedicated to selecting purchased goods that exert as little environmental load as possible. Additionally, as part of our new efforts to comply with REACH regulations, we have also commenced self-management activities to enable us to maintain a proper understanding of the chemical substances contained in our products and to properly exchange information on such matters.
China RoHS is formally known as "Management Methods for Restricting Hazardous Substances Used in Electric and Electronic Products", which was implemented on July 1, 2016 in China. Same as EU RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU), this regulation restricts the usage of six substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE). This regulation requires electronic information products which are manufactured or imported, and sold in China, to clearly disclose contents of the 6 restricted substances listed below.
Names and contents of hazardous substances
|Usage Deadline for Environmental Protection||Products Name||Names and contents of hazardous substances|
|Lead and its compounds (Pb)||Mercury and its compounds (Hg)||Cadmium and its compounds (Cd)||Hexavalent chromium compounds (Cr(VI))||PBB||PBDE|
|LED Light, Control Unit, or Optional product||×||○||×||○||○||○|
(This table is made in compliance with SJ/T11364 regulations.))
○: Indicates that this toxic or hazardous substances contained in all the homogeneous materials for this part, according to GB/T26572 is within the limit requirement.
×: Indicates that this toxic or hazardous substance contained in all the homogeneous materials for this part, according to GB/T26572, is over the limit requirement.
* Lead and cadmium are exempted in EU RoHS.
Usage deadline for environmental protection
The number used in this logo is based on “Management Methods for Restricting Hazardous Substances Used in Electric and Electronic Products” and related regulations. It shows the product usage duration in years for environmental protection. After finishing a product usage, the product needs to be re-used or discarded appropriately following local law and regulations, complying with safety and usage caution.
In order to conduct appropriate risk management for the chemical substances contained in products listed on this website, CCS has undertaken efforts to reduce the environmental load for the goods it purchases, and it strives to select purchased goods that exert as little environmental load as possible. Additionally, as part of its new efforts to comply with REACH regulations, it has also established a system to maintain a proper understanding of the chemical substances contained in its products and to properly exchange information on such matters, as a means of self-management.
In regards to the usage of substances specified as SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) under REACH regulations for individual products, please contact our company for further details.
