BATH, England, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
With revenues and reputations at stake, manufacturers, importers and distributors of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) are focussed on minimizing the risk that product sales are stopped and/or products are recalled due to non-compliance with requirements in the RoHS2 Directive 2011/65/EC. To reduce the pressure on EEE manufacturers and importers, SGS (http://www.sgs.com), the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, offers RoHS Compliance Assessment Services using http://www.BOMcheck.net , the industry-led materials declarations web database for electrical and electronic equipment.
Established in 2013, the service uses the EN 50581 European Standard and provides cost-effective compliance with the RoHS2 regulatory requirements for Technical Documentation and CE Declaration of Conformity. The EN 50581 standard is endorsed by the European Commission as an approved method for managing compliance with EU RoHS2. Regulatory authorities expect companies to adopt the EN 50581 standard or provide evidence that their compliance management system provides equivalent quality levels.
SGS and BOMcheck will provide a free webinar on Thursday, June 16 at 5.00pm Central European Time, 4.00pm UK time, 11.00am US Eastern Time, 8.00am US Pacific Time, to explain the EN 50581 standard and highlight the business benefits of the compliance assessment services.
