Listed here are the flagship Enviropass services:
The European Union (EU) RoHS directive is one of the most respected environmental laws dedicated to electrical or electronic equipment.
Depending on your needs, Enviropass offers Europe RoHS consulting “Classic” or “Deluxe” training services.
REACH is a set of regulations set down in Europe, although they are used all over the world. The purview of REACH law is rather broad, covering many substances, mixtures, and most products in the household or workplace. Target articles include chemicals, electronic devices, batteries, packaging, mechanical items, furniture, toys, etc.
Producers must declare certain candidate substances, such as the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). Other materials are merely banned (or at least restricted) as indicated in the REACH Annex XVII.
Enviropass helps you with the SCIP registration and notification of SVHCs in your products.
ISO 14001 is the most recognized standard of environmental management systems. The environmental aspects of all activities, services, and products of a given organization fall under this standard.
An important note is that suppliers must also account for environmental product life cycles (PLCs). This protocol should also consider applicable product environment regulations such as RoHS, REACH, POP, WEEE, or any product-specific requirements.
Enviropass has helped various companies and agencies with their environmental management systems alongside their needs for environmental compliance audits.
Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations are in place worldwide. Many municipal and state bodies have implemented WEEE, e-cycling, or take-back programs that may apply to your devices. The European Union has the broadest scope and covers the most product categories, including professional electronic equipment.
Since every state has its own set of rules, it is not always easy for international participants to understand and fully comply. Let Enviropass guide you through this journey!
China RoHS has followed the Europe RoHS initiative quite promptly. An important note, however, is that China’s RoHS obligations, labels, and declarations differ from the European standard.
Let Enviropass assist you by:
finding the appropriate product label, including the Environment-Friendly Use Period (EFUP) symbol.
California proposition 65 targets hundreds of substances, much like REACH SVHC. If they are contained in your products and may come in direct contact with the consumers, these substances must have declaration following a Safe Harbor Warning.
Via a risk assessment, Enviropass performs the inventory of the substances that may be in your products.
Alongside RoHS, REACH, the POP regulation is the third requirement that typically applies to electrical and electronic equipment placed on the European market.
POP means Persistent Organic Pollutants. Like REACH SVHC, POP applies to many types of products and targets bioaccumulative substances (halogenated chemicals).
Enviropass can assess your products against POP substances.
Enviropass offers the following additional services. Most are related to environmental regulation while some tackle social issues, such as the conflict minerals reporting requirements.
Certain minerals, such as the 3TGs (tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold) originate from conflict zones. Some mines are even under terrorist activities. Regulations are in place to curb the risk of financing such activities, and an audit system has been implemented via Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates (CMRT).
Enviropass is here to audit your supply chain and prepare your CMRT accordingly.
The federal US Toxic Substances Control Act now restricts the use of persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) substances in articles and other products. Enviropass’ experts have the solution to help you comply.
The countries of the Eurasian Economic Union, including Russia, have also published a RoHS law. Enviropass advises on the technical documentation of this so-called Russia RoHS.
California RoHS is very similar to the first version of Europe RoHS, which only covered six substances in that iteration. If your product is already EU RoHS compliant, compliance under California RoHS is an easy move. Let Enviropass verify that for you!
Interestingly enough, battery compliance is not part of the RoHS scope. However, this does not imply that batteries can contain heavy metals at any concentration! Distinct regulations apply specifically to batteries worldwide.
You might have noticed that automotive equipment is outside the scope of Europe RoHS. The reason is because of a separate regulation dedicated entirely to hazardous substance restrictions in vehicles: the End-of-life vehicle (ELV) directive. Enviropass recommends using the same RoHS compliance approach.
Depending on your type of medical device RoHS, REACH, POP, and other specific restrictions of chemical use may apply.
Sadly enough, human trafficking, such as child and forced labor, is still rampant in the manufacturing industry worldwide. Some states and countries have implemented a set of corporate obligations to fight this social scourge, including supply chain audits.. Enviropass can help you with such audits and assist with your due diligence procedures.
The discipline of ecodesign is evolving rapidly, as are the associated legal requirements and standards.
Enviropass commits to informing and assisting you with your ecodesign questions.
The United Arab Emirates uses a localized UAE RoHS set of compliance obligations. Enviropass supports companies in preparing their technical files and submitting robust application forms.
Technically, Taiwan RoHS resembles both EU and China RoHS characteristics, with the European concept of exemptions alongside the Chinese table information to the recycler. Enviropass has the consulting capabilities to verify your products against Taiwan RoHS.
Being close geographically and economically to the European Union, Turkey has also enacted its regulation, with slight deviations from Europe RoHS. Do you export electrical and electronic products to Turkey? Make sure you fully comply with Turkey RoHS!
Just like batteries, package environmental requirements fall under specific regulations prohibiting the use of heavy metals. Enviropass can verify on your behalf whether the packaging of your products complies, worldwide.
Whether you need declarations under EPEC, IPC-1752, IMDS, GADSL, or another standard, Enviropass is here to help you with your product material declarations.
