The UK’s RoHS directive enforcer, the National Weights and Measures Laboratory (NWML), has released its 16-page RoHS enforcement guidelines. The guidelines can be accessed at this website.
Aiming to create a level playing field across Europe, the document was produced in consultation with other European Union RoHS enforcement agencies. “Whilst the overall approach to RoHS compliance is based on a presumption of conformity, it is recognized that national authorities will require self-declaration from producers as the key principle underlying the enforcement process,” said the NWML in a statement.
According to a report in Electronics Weekly, a UK-based sister publication to Design News, in the guidelines, the NWML sets out its view of what a typical list of overview documentation is expected to look like, as well as a typical compliance documentation list.
