China RoHS Directive and Product Markings

For Electrical Products that Export to China
The Chinese government’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulation – officially titled “Management Methods for Controlling Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products Regulation” – was developed independently of Europe's RoHS directive, though there is substantial overlap between the two regulations. Manufacturers exporting products to China should note that some product types covered by China RoHS are not within the scope of European RoHS. Examples include automotive electronics, radar equipment and medical devices.

China RoHS was published in March 2006 and became effective March 1, 2007. The requirement is to use a marking to disclose the presence and location of any of six identified hazardous substances present in a product. The six substances are:

  • Lead (Pb)
  • Cadmium (Cd)
  • Mercury (Hg)
  • Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr)
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)

China RoHS does not allow any technology exemptions, unlike Europe’s RoHS directive.
