by Maureen Perroni, on May 4, 2016

When it comes to limiting the use of hazardous materials in electronics, the European Union has been a major success story. Now, other governments are looking to emulate the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive.

In China, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is working on an updated regulation that will cover electronics manufactured in the country for the purpose of being exported. Lead, mercury and other notable hazardous substances will be significantly limited. Given China's position in the global supply chain, this is an important development that will lead to safer products.

Keeping electronic devices free of hazardous materials not only protects buyers, but also makes them easier to recycle. Enterprise Labeling helps firms comply with all applicable regulations, even after they undergo significant changes.
