Two Products Removed from Market Due to EU RoHS & EU POPs Violation
Electric Kitchen Products Violate EU RoHS and EU POPs Regulations
Importers of two electrical kitchen products have been ordered to recall the products from the European market for failure to comply with the EU RoHS Directive and the EU Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Regulation.
On March 30, 2021, economic operators directed importers to cease import of both a DSP brand electrical hot-plate and a Marado brand electric kettle. The action also calls for importers to recall existing product from end users.
According to the EU Safety Gate alert for the DSP brand electrical hot-plate, the plastic material of the product contains short chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs) and an excessive amount of bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) (measured values up to 0.48 % and 8.04 % by weight, respectively), while the metal solder in the product contains an excessive amount of lead (measured value up to: 0.18 % by weight), thereby putting the product in violation of the EU RoHS Directive and the EU Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Regulation.
The EU Safety Gate alert for the Marado brand electric kettle states that the plastic material of the product contains short chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs) and an excessive amount of bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) (measured values up to 4.83 % and 2.85 % by weight, respectively), while the metal solder in the product contains an excessive amount of lead (measured value up to: 0.21 % by weight). As such, that product is also in violation of the EU RoHS Directive and the EU Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Regulation.
As a result of the violations, EU importers were ordered to recall the products from end users and stop further sales of the products.
GreenSoft’s data services can help prevent loss of market access for regulation violations
Compliance with the EU RoHS Directive and the EU POPs Regulation are requirements for affected companies that manufacture or distribute products in the European market. As demonstrated by the enforcement action above, failure to comply with EU RoHS or EU POPs can result of loss of market access and other serious consequences for manufacturers and distributors.
We will collect compliance data on parts and assemblies from your supply chain for you, and generate compliance and completion reports so that you can assess whether your products and parts are in compliance with EU RoHS or EU POPs and other regulations. For parts that are above the regulation thresholds, we can help in the sourcing of replacement parts.
