Based on the requirements of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) 2002/95/EC, lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether may no longer be used in electrical and electronic equipment.

How can the manufacturer or distributor prove that the product complies with the RoHS Directive? And how can they avoid having to make substantial and costly changes to the product after it has been placed on the market?

In our laboratories, we can perform XRF screening tests with more detailed material characterisation tests using spectroscopy techniques.
