PCB circuit board ce certification | PCB circuit board ce emc report

Printed circuit boards {PCB circuit boards}, also known as printed circuit boards, are providers of electrical connections for electronic components. With the rapid development of the mobile phone, electronics, and communication industries, it has also driven the continuous and rapid growth of the PCB circuit board industry. People have higher requirements on the number of layers, weight, precision, materials, colors and reliability of components. A little higher. As a large country exporting PCB circuit boards, manufacturers should understand that exporting PCB circuit boards to the EU must first obtain CE certification before they can sell their products in the EU.

PCB circuit board CE certification directive

PCB circuit boards have been certified according to the EU's RoHS directive. If necessary, you can also implement the WEEE directive and REACH certification! The RoHS directive is a CE marking directive. This means that if it is sold or placed on the market within the EU, the equipment within its scope must carry the CE mark. The CE mark is applied to the product by the manufacturer (or authorized representative, if required).

The EU RoHS stipulates the maximum content of the following 10 restricted substances.

Cadmium (Cd):

Lead (Pb):

Mercury (Hg):

Hexavalent chromium: (Cr VI)

Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB):

Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE):

Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP):

Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP):

Dibutyl phthalate (DBP):

Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP):

Related to RoHS is WEEE, which stands for waste generated by electrical and electronic equipment. The WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC requires the treatment, recovery and recycling of electrical and electronic equipment (90% of which end up in landfill). All applicable products on the EU market must be WEEE certified and bear the "Wheelie Bin" label. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the content of harmful substances in PCB circuit boards exported to the European Union to ensure that they can pass the test for harmful substances!

PCB circuit board CE certification process

1. Testing: Conduct on-site testing and/or laboratory phthalate solvent extraction testing to determine the value of ten restricted RoHS substances.

2. Process review: On-site inspection is used for all applicable manufacturing processes that comply with RoHS requirements.

3. Document review: review all suppliers' bills of materials, technical documents, assembly drawings, material declarations, test reports and qualifications/qualification certificates.

The technical file must contain the following:

1. General product description and design structure information;

2. Risk assessment of materials, parts and sub-assemblies;

3. Compliance information about materials, parts and sub-assemblies;

4. Production documents and records;

5. Uniform standards, norms and compliance procedures.

4. Certification statement: After a successful audit, a RoHS CE certificate will be issued.
