RoHS Services

Semiconductor Products contribute greatly to the environmental impact due to their high functionality. The movement towards tighter regulation laws and environmental protection has led manufacturers in the electronics and automotive fields to examine how they can eliminate hazardous chemical substances from their products. EU (European Union) restrictions on the chemical substances utilized in end products continue to be tightened by the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) in electrical and electronic equipment, WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), and ELV (End of Life Vehicles) directives.

ROHS bans placement in to the EU market the new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than designated maximum allowable levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and  polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. Health impacts of the above hazardous substances include damage of kidney (Cd), Carcinogenic & damage of 6+ DNA (Cr ), longlived, fat-seeking and therefore bioaccumulate in animal tissue and possible endocrine disruptors (PBB and PBDEs) and damage to brain, fetus and travels easily in the food chain.

C-MET possesses one of the best human resources in testing of trace impurities in samples of different origin. C-MET has developed requisite Infrastructure, state of the art characterization facility and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as per IEC 62321:2008 standard.  RoHS analysis of variety of samples are being carried out using Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (EDXRF), Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) with hydride generator, Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICPMS), Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer(ICP-OES),Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (GCMS), Ion-Chromatograph (IC), UV-Visible Spectrophotometer (UV-Visible), etc.  This RoHS test facility is accreditated as per ISO 17025:2005 standard by National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories (NABL), Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, in the field of chemical analysis of electronic materials (polymers, metals, etc.).CMET maintains Confidentiality of Test reports for our customers.
