Digital Marking Requirements for Hazardous Substances
On October 13, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (“MIIT”) released a standard modification order for the marking requirements in the China RoHS legislation.
The standard modification order, titled “Restriction of Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic products using the identification requirements,” lays out standards for the description or adjustment of the electronic components and digital format identifications.
According to the release, China RoHS will be amended as follows:
- For components and materials of electronic and electrical products, such as display components, circuit boards, resistors, phosphors that can not directly identify the use of hazardous substances on the surface of electrical and electronic products, the substances must be identified by the use of digital formats (for products with image display function) or identified in the product description.
- For electrical and electronic products with image display function, the identification of use of hazardous substances is changed from being required to be displayed upon each start up of the device to now only needing to be displayed on the startup for the first time in the product sales package.
