WEEE and RoHS

Since 2006 the (RoHS) legislation created by the EU will ban placement into the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than designated maximum allowable levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. 

RoHS compliance is based on each homogeneous material and not components or devices. Therefore, different techniques may be used for different purposes and/or different samples. As an example, a hand-held instrument can be very useful for screening, but can never be used for the analysis of an electronic board. Moreover, a bulk sample does not require the fine spot of an analytical x-ray microscope, but can be analyzed with a simple XRF or an ICP. Gammadata provides a wide range of analytical techniques for WEEE/RoHS and ELV testing, as well as equipment for sample preparation, standards and certified reference materials.
