If you are a manufacturer, importer, or a distributor, of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placing products on the UK market, understanding ROHS and REACH compliance is vital.

It also minimizes waste, scrap, and rework, enhances the brand and fosters your alignment with suppliers.

What are the compliance RoHS and REACH requirements? What are the differences between them? What steps should you take to comply? This article explains.

Understanding RoHS

RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. It is an 'EU legislation restricting the use of hazardous substances in EEE and promoting the collection and recycling of such equipment.' The directive which is in force since 2003, also supports effective recovery, reuse, and recycling of products. 

Understanding REACH

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals. It is a regulation of the European Union.

  • Regulation number 1907/2006
  • Concerns chemicals and their safe use
  • Has a defined process that must be followed for risk and chemical management
  • New substances are added to the candidate list every 6-9 month
  • Proposed SVHCs (Substance of very high concern) are put to a 45-day public comment
