Covering global market access requirements
RoHS, REACH testing & certification and Proposition65, packaging, e-waste, recycling, WEEE, ErP, batteries and other sustainability methods become mandatory in more countries every day, putting an obligation on manufacturers to comply with design and collecting requirements. Any company that sells applicable electronic products, directly to EU countries, or sells to resellers or distributors that in turn sell products to EU countries, is impacted if they utilize any of the banned materials and will need to have RoHS testing & certification, REACH testing and more, for global market access requirements.
Besides of this, in terms of safety to the user, chemical exposure from the articles is a key issue in many countries today, putting obligations on suppliers and manufacturers before entering the market such as CPSC in the USA, proposition in California, REACH testing and RoHS certification in EU and so on.
