Compliance Risks for new RoHS2 Phthalate Substance Restrictions

by BOMcheck (March 2019)

The four phthalates DEHP, BBP, DBP and DiBP will become restricted under RoHS2 from July 2019. According to industry, there are still a lot of non-compliant materials used in electronics and electrical equipment particularly in purchased components such as cables. Enforcement actions against such products by customs authorities can be very costly with product recall, lost sales and product reformulation costs to be taken into consideration.

This recorded webinar explains the restrictions and highlights the risk materials in RoHS2 enforcement actions across Europe. It also covered how the EN 50581 standard and EN IEC 63000 standard can be used to make self-declarations for no-risk materials.
