Total Parts Plus Inc., a provider of obsolete electronic components as well as environmental compliance services, has developed a China RoHS labeling solution. China’s labeling requirement is the first phase of its RoHS directive. The identification of toxic and hazardous substances must be included on labels for electronic products by March 1, 2007. Total Parts Plus has created a Web-based application that allows users to quickly identify the component substances and export the data in a pre-defined label format. “The China RoHS labeling solution provides a quick and user-friendly means for acquiring the data needed to meet the labeling requirements,” says John Hsu, vice president of engineering at Total Parts Plus.
China RoHS comes with strict labeling requirements, as shown by this example of a China RoHS label.
