The up-to-date FBDi Environmental and Compliance Compass v2.5 offers companies along the supply chain unique assistance in dealing with environmental directives. Electrical and electronic products are fully classified according to RoHS2 and WEEE2 categories, and requirements concerning CE have been revised accordingly.
The revision targets the RoHS2 directive, which since January requires manufacturers, importers, and distributors of electrical and electronic products to provide proof that their products are RoHS compliant. Important news in this context: Products are subject to CE marking requirements in relation to RoHS. The required EU declaration of conformity in the form of “technical documentation” must be provided. The focus of product reviews by the market surveillance authority is set on the quality assurance processes of the manufacturers and, as the case may be, importers, thus distributors. (Up to now it was based on measurements.) They assume full product responsibility and must perform the conformity assessment independently. In addressing the new regulations, the revised FBDi Compass v2.5 offers valuable help, as this procedural guide gathers months of expertise of the FBDi working group environment.
