SGS has announced the launch of a new service that provides manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronics (E&E) products with a one-stop solution to meeting the many and varied regulations on restricted substances applicable around the globe.
In response to growing awareness of the environmental damage and risk to human health caused by hazardous chemicals, a growing number of countries and regions are implementing their own restricted substance regulations.
The International Type Approval (ITA) Restricted Substances Service Solution from SGS offers the industry a streamlined and cost-effective solution to demonstrating chemical compliance against restricted substance regulations in over 60 countries; ensuring they are best placed to meet the mandatory legal requirements for their target markets.
Benefits of the new service, which covers ITE & mobile, household appliances, luminaries, audio/video, medical devices, photovoltaic, power supply, batteries, power tools and machinery products, amongst others, include:
• Increased level of product acceptance in the global market – bringing competitive advantage
• One-stop professional solution to chemical compliance, including testing services and advise on regulatory requirements for different markets
• Better utilization of resources - saving testing sample time and resources
• Enhanced brand value of the product and perception about product quality.
SGS’s Executive Vice President for CRS EE, David Chu, said: “SGS aims to help the electrical and electronics industry reach new markets quickly and efficiently and, for many organizations, the multitude of national and international type standards can be a very real barrier to enterprise. Developing high quality goods that are safe and chemically compliant is a necessary yet complex challenge and our ITA Restricted Substances Service Solution cuts through the complexities to support the industry in demonstrating compliance and achieving certification.”
Type-approval systems provides a mechanism for countries and regions to protect the environment, through a focus on better design, production and disposal phases of the life cycle of electronic products, and the health and safety of their citizenry.
