China RoHS Directive
Now that we’re all ready for RoHS and WEEE, perhaps we can take a few deep breaths and start thinking about China’s draft regulations. Often called China RoHS, the draft document from China’s Ministry of Information Industry starts where the EU directive left off and expands the scope considerably. In addition, the National Development Reform Commission (NRDC) is drafting a recycling initiative dubbed China WEEE by outsiders.
Reading the draft of China RoHS is actually quite easy. The unofficial English translation is clearly written and reasonably well translated. The 25 articles on 4 pages are much more understandable than the EU directive ever was. A number of points stand out.
- Prevention of pollution by eliminating pollutants and requiring recycling (chapter 2)
Cradle-to-grave scope (articles 8-10)
- Packaging must be non-toxic, biodegradable and recyclable (article 10)
