Singapore RoHS will come into Force in 2017

2016-08-10 102

On 1 June 2016, Singapore's Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) released S 263/2016 to amend the Second Schedule of the Environmental Protection and Management Act, prohibiting the use of six hazardous substances in EEE products. It will take effect on 1 June 2017. The substances it restricts are: cadmium and its compounds, hexavalent chromium, lead and its compounds, mercury and its compounds, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. It applies to a much narrower list of products: mobile phones, laptops, refrigerators, air conditioners, panel television sets and washing machines. Batteries and accumulators, and products designed for industrial use only are excluded.
