One month left! Will your products be stopped at the border?

14:00 CET

RoHS for the Custom Union and Nemko experience after our first 100 projects.

Sign-up for our webinar Thursday 23 January 2020 to learn more.

From 1 March 2020, you must have RoHS certification when exporting to the Custom Union.
The Custom Union, or correct name which is Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), consists of the following countries: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia. 
Nemko estimates that the number of products that need CoC or DoC for RoHS before 1 March will be several hundred thousand products. Will your products be stopped at the border?

Nemko held a webinar 7 November 2019 about the same topic; watch the recording HERE
A lot of questions were raised during and after the webinar. We will now follow-up with our latest experience from real-time handling of the projects.

Some headlines:

  1. The new regulation, EAEU TR 037/2016, ban the use of the same 6 substances (lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers) as in the first EU regulation. 
  2. EAEU TR 037/2016 opens up for using 2 compliance routes; Both in-country testing of all homogenous materials in the product or use of the QA system based on Standards EN 50581 or IEC 63000.
  3. The check for compliance will be performed both on the Market by Market Surveillance officers and at the border by Custom officers. The border check will be done by verification that the product has been uploaded to the EAC database.

Nemko estimates that the number of products that need CoC or DoC for RoHS before 1 March, to be several hundred thousand products.
Nemko has been working hard to find solutions for our customers, to avoid the products being stopped at the border.
