|Certification items||Test item (standard)||Related introduction|
|ROHS||Lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium,|
Polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers
|RoHS is a mandatory standard established by EU legislation, mainly used to regulate the material and process standards of electrical and electronic products. Control the content of harmful substances in electrical and electronic products to make them more conducive to human health and environmental protection.|
|REACH||Metal and non-metal detection||REACH refers to the EU regulations “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals”. |
This is a legal proposal concerning the safety of chemical production, trade, and use.
Unlike the RoHS directive, REACH covers a much wider range. In fact, it will affect products and manufacturing processes in almost all industries, from mining to textiles and garments, light industry, and electromechanical industries.
|PAHS||Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons|
|Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) refer to a class of organic compounds with two or more benzene rings. |
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are hydrocarbons containing more than two benzene rings in the molecule, including more than
150 compounds such as naphthalene, anthracene, phenanthrene, and pyrene
|CPSIA||Lead, phthalate||CPSIA affects all related industries in the United States that produce, import, and distribute toys, clothing, and other children’s products and care products. |
All manufacturers should ensure that their products comply with all regulations, bans, standards or rules of the Act
|Phthalates (phthalates) are a group of chemical compounds, mainly used in polyvinyl chloride materials. |
Conventional phthalate ( ester ) testing mainly includes six items (DEHP
, DINP , DIDP, DBP, BBP & DnOP) , referred to as 6P .
|California 65||Lead, cadmium||California Document No. |
65 is about glassware and ceramics requirements, requiring warnings to be marked on any products in California that emit carcinogenic or regeneratively toxic chemicals.
The listed chemicals include lead and cadmium.
|AZO Compounds||Azo compounds|
|Azo compound is AZO , azo group ─ N=N ─ and a compound formed by connecting two hydrocarbon groups, the general formula is R ─ N=N ─ R ′. |
Many azo compounds have carcinogenic effects and are banned. AZO FREE has become one of the most important quality monitoring items in the international textile and apparel trade.
|Formaldehyde||formaldehyde||Formaldehyde is a colorless gas with a strong pungent odor. |
Easily soluble in water, alcohol and ether.
Its 35%-40% aqueous solution is commonly called formalin.
It is not possible to use textile auxiliaries that make the formaldehyde content of textiles directly in contact with the skin exceed
30 ppm and that of all other textiles exceed 300 ppm .
|Halogen detection||Fluorine ( F ), chlorine ( CL )|
Bromine ( Br ), iodine ( I ), astatine ( At )
|Halogen compounds are often used as a flame retardant. |
Used in electronic components and materials, product shells, plastics, etc.
But in the process of burning and heating, harmful substances will be released, threatening the health of human body, the environment and the next generation.
Therefore, various countries are adopting corresponding methods to make efforts to limit the halogen content, which is halogen-free.
|EU Packaging Directive||94/62/EC||Lead + cadmium + mercury + hexavalent chromium <0.01%|
|U.S. Packaging Directive||TPCH(CONEG)||Lead + cadmium + mercury + hexavalent chromium <0.01%|
|EU Battery Directive||2006/66/EC||Mercury <5ppm, cadmium <20ppm, lead <40ppm|
