China RoHS 2


China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, with the collaboration of seven other ministries, promulgated the Management Methods for the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products (China ROHS 2) on January 21, 2016. China RoHS 2 extends its scope from electronic information products (EIPs) to electrical and electronic products (EEPs). It restricts the use of lead (Pb) and its compounds, mercury (Hg) and its compounds, cadmium (Cd) and its compounds, hexavalent chromium (Cr+6) compounds, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). China RoHS 2’s restrictions on six hazardous substances align with the European Union 2011/65/EU directive, or EU RoHS 2 directive. Since the EU RoHS directive came into effect first, it has become the standard for these types of product safety and environmental laws.

Aiming to protect Chinese consumers and the environment, China RoHS 2 requires manufacturers to restrict the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products and disclose hazardous substances contained in these products, in accordance with the standards of SJ/T 11364-2014: Marking for the Restricted Use of Hazardous Substances in Electronic and Electrical Products and GB/T 26572-2011: Requirements of concentration limits for certain restricted substances in electrical and electronic products. These regulations have been enforced since July 1, 2016.
