Has anyone yet amended their commissioning paperwork (PPQ June 2003) to reflect compliance with RoHs II? Is it enough just to ask for the Manufacturer's copy of the Declaration of Conformity and check that it complies with EN 50581?
Found this interesting snippet of information
Article 13(2) of the RoHS2 Directive states that the EU Declaration of Conformity shall contain the following elements and shall be updated
1. Model number or other means of uniquely identifying the product
2. Name and address of the manufacturer or his authorised representative
3. Statement that the EU Declaration of Conformity is issued under the sole responsibility of the manufacturer
4. Object of the declaration (identification of the product allowing traceability. It may include a photograph, where appropriate)
5. Statement that the object of the declaration described above is in conformity with the RoHS substance restrictions
6. Where applicable, references to the relevant harmonised standards used or references to the technical specifications in relation to which conformity is declared
7. Signature on behalf of the producer (name, function) and date of issue
Article 7(g) of the RoHS2 Directive requires the Manufacturer to ensure that the product bears a type,batch or serial number or other element allowing its identification, or, where the size or nature of the product does not allow it, that the required information is provided on the packaging or in a document
accompanying the product.
Article 7(c) of the RoHS2 Directive 2011/65/EU states that where the Manufacturer can demonstrate that the required technical documentation has been drawn up and the internal production controls in line with Module A of Annex II of Decision 768/2008/EC have been implemented, then the Manufacturer can affix the CE marking to the finished product. [i]If the Manufacturer has already affixed the CE marking to the product to claim conformity to another Directive (for example the Medical Devices Directive) and the Manufacturer continues to supply the product after the date that the product is required to comply with the RoHS2 requirements, under Article 16 (1) of RoHS2 this CE marking now means that the Manufacturer is also claiming that their product conforms to the RoHS substance restrictions. If a single EU Declaration of Conformity is developed to cover several Directives, then the EU Declaration of Conformity should state that compliance to the RoHS2 Directive requirements is the sole responsibility of the Manufacturer.
