Taiwan Implements Requirements for RoHS in Electronic Equipment

June 1, 2017

Taiwan has recently implemented requirements for RoHS (Restrictions of Hazardous Substances) in electronic equipment. These requirements are aligned with the European RoHS directive excluding phthalates.

The new requirements will be enforced for some electrical products beginning July 1, 2017 as part of the mandatory assessment scheme by the authority BSMI. There is a proposal to add 92 more categories of electrical products by Jan 1, 2018.

Products will be assessed to CNS 15663 in addition to the Safety and EMC mandatory conformity assessments. There is a marking change and a requirement of a table to be available with the product.

For more information on the product types that are in scope for phase 1, refer to these documents.
