Progress in RoHS3 compliance as deadline approaches.

Anglia has continued to make big strides towards full RoHS 3* compliance over six months before the deadline for meeting the new provisions. The distributor is working closely with its suppliers and can confirm that the majority of the suppliers they work with are now confirmed as fully compliant with the new more rigorous regulations. Details of the status of each supplier is fully documented on Anglia Live.

Commenting, Claire Stevenson, Quality Manager of Anglia, said, “We are continuously updating our Anglia Live website as we receive confirmed compliance information. 58 of our suppliers have already confirmed their products are fully compliant with the requirements of RoHS 3, they represent over 70% of the product lines we are able to supply. Many of the remaining suppliers have provided compliance road maps showing that they will be able to fully comply by the deadline.

“Much of our current inventory is already compliant with the requirements of RoHS 3, and we have taken steps to ensure that all inventory will be RoHS 3 compliant by the deadline. Customers can continue to use RoHS 2 compliant products up until 22nd July 2019, after this date they will need to ensure products are RoHS 3 compliant. Certificates of RoHS compliance can be downloaded from Anglia Live allowing customers to complete their own compliance documentation.”

RoHS 3 was announced in 2016 and expands the list of prohibited substances from six to ten by adding four new types of phthalates.

Manufacturers have until the 22nd July 2019 to meet these provisions. Although it is an EU directive, it has been widely adopted in many other regions across the globe and will still apply to British industry even after Brexit.
