Key Differences between China RoHS and EU RoHS:

  • The scope is different
  • The requirements are different
  • There are no exemptions ... for phase 1
  • The proposed exemptions for phase 2 are a SUBSET of EU RoHS exemptions
  • Labels, marks, and disclosure are required
  • The concept of "Put on the market" is different
  • The penalties are different
  • The responsibilities dictated by the law are different
  • Material testing down to the homogeneous materials in every single part you use to build your product may be required
  • The regulation has been in force since March 1, 2007
  • You will have to design labels and issue change orders in order to comply
  • The standards that you have to comply with are now available

If you're not nervous, you're not paying attention. Start paying attention and enhance your understanding of China RoHS today.
