Singapore Notified the WTO/TBT for SG RoHS
Singapore's National Environment Agency (NEA) is proposing for an inclusion of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in six Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) under the Second Schedule of the existing Environmental Protection and Management Act (EPMA). Singapore RoHS (SG RoHS) is adapted from the EU RoHS Directive, Directive 2011/65/EU.
All EEE, be supplied or for sale in Singapore, must meet the prescribed restrictions (as shown below) if they are manufactured or imported for sale in Singapore. The restrictions would be effected 1 year from the date of gazette of SG RoHS, and NEA would be gazetting SG RoHS in 4Q 2015.1. 6 Restricted Hazardous Substances:
- Lead (Pb); Mercury (Hg); Hexavalent Chromium (Cr VI); Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBBs); Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) – Allowable Concentration Limits: Maximum 1,000ppm (0.1% by weight)
- Cadmium (Cd) – Allowable Concentration Limits: Maximum 100ppm (0.01% by weight)
2. Controlled EEE: 6 identified EEE: mobile phones, mobile computers, refrigerators, air conditioners, panel TVs and washing machines (excluding spare parts and components which are sold separately)
[Note: EU-RoHS control includes all EEE and their spare parts, with certain exemptions.
