Regulations and certifications play a critical role in ensuring the safety, quality and compliance of magnetic products in a variety of industries. This overview will provide an understanding of the key regulations and certifications that govern magnets.
RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances):
The European Union established the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive to reduce the environmental impact of electronic and electrical equipment by limiting the use of specific hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury and cadmium. To ensure the safety of human health and the environment, magnets used in electronic devices must comply with RoHS standards.
Hyab will always supply magnets and magnet systems that are RoHS, RoHS 2 and RoHS 3 compliant. As a customer of Hyab Magneter AB, you can, if desired, receive signed documentation with your company's name on delivered material that confirms that the article/articles are within the scope of the RoHS and REACH directives.
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals)
The REACH directive is an EU regulation, (EC) No. 1907/2006, which governs the production and use of chemicals. The goal of the legislation is to protect human health and the environment from chemicals and to increase competitiveness and innovation within the chemical industry within the EU.
Hyab imports raw materials from European and Asian suppliers for resale and processing. As a responsible supplier, we work continuously and goal-oriented to ensure that our part of the REACH directive is fulfilled and that you as a customer are informed and updated. You as a customer can receive a signed document confirming that we comply with both the RoHS and REACH directives.
IEC and ISO certifications are international standards
International standards, such as those developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), contribute to the quality, safety and reliability of magnets and magnetic systems. Important criteria include:
ISO 9001: This internationally recognized certification demonstrates a company's commitment to quality management, ensuring that magnetic products meet customer specifications and comply with applicable regulations.
To ensure the safety, quality and compliance of magnetic products in a variety of industries, it is necessary to navigate the complex landscape of magnetic regulations and certifications. By understanding key standards such as RoHS, REACH, IEC, ISO compliance, you can choose the right magnet for your application and promote a safer, more sustainable magnetics industry.
