The ROHS Directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. If you are involved in the sale, manufacture or export or import of electric or electronic equipment or parts, you are likely affected by RoHS regulations and you should familiarize yourself with RoHS Directive. In order to ensure that products are RoHS compliant, careful testing and documentation must be done in accordance with RoHS Directive regulations. RoHS consultants help oversee compliance for businesses. These professionals ensure that all necessary parts and equipment are testing according to RoHS guidelines and that all testing is carefully documented. Most companies who have not been compliant have become so after only some RoHS training. RoHS training involves teaching yourself and your employees about RoHS regulations and corrects testing for RoHS controlled substances. Ignorance is not considered a viable excuse for RoHS non-compliance, so it is important to learn about RoHS and to ensure that your company is fully RoHS compliant. Learn the RoHS compliant definition and seek out consultants or additional assistance if you are unsure of the RoHS compliance definition for your business or are uncertain about testing procedures. Failing to make products RoHS compliant or refusing to comply with requests for documentation can result in fines. In some cases, businesses can be denied export of their products. Specific penalties vary from state to state, but non-compliance is always far more costly for a business than compliance. Most businesses that must ensure RoHS compliance must also ensure WEEE compliance as well. For details Visit at
