RoHS / Pb Free, marks and certification?
« on: November 27, 2011, 07:43:03 am »
Does anyone have a guide on what is required to use any of these marks on products?

Im building a few products that I would like to sell internationally (europe etc) - I'm using a Pb free PCB finish & solder,  all parts on the board are also sold from digikey/farnell as  RoHS.

Does RoHS etc require a certification or is the above enough to claim Pb Free or RoHS?

If you are the manufacturer you can add a self-declaration such as the one I attach to this post.
It's not only for lead-free, but for all other noxious substances.
The one attached  is for a product manufactured by a Chinese company for an European OEM.
I had to edit the original and delete all the names for obvious reasons.
Best regards
