Introduction

Certain substances contained in electrical and electronic products are restricted by legislation

and/or customer specifications. Manufacturers of final products therefore need to be able to

demonstrate that their products meet the applicable substance restrictions.

For those restrictions that apply at the “homogeneous material" level, it is impractical for

manufacturers of complex products to undertake their own testing of all materials contained in

the final assembled product. Instead, manufacturers work with their suppliers to manage

compliance and compile technical documentation as evidence of compliance. This approach is

well recognised by both industry and enforcement authorities.

The aim of this European Standard is to specify the technical documentation that the

manufacturer needs to compile in order to declare compliance with the applicable substance

restrictions. In this way, this European Standard supports Directive 2011/65/EU of the

European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain

hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS).

This European Standard can also find an application in demonstrating conformity to other

substance regulations worldwide.
