PoHS Norway
 

 

 

PoHS
 

Norwegian PoHS(Prohibition on Certain Hazardous Substances in Consumer Products) became effective on Jan 1st, 2008. The PoHS and EU RoHS Directives are similar and concern consumer products. Although the legislation applies only to Norway, RoHS standards could be potentially used for electrical and electronic products exported to EU, as very few companies will produce the same product tailored to a separate market. There are 18 hazardous substances in this regulation.

The new standard covers almost all consumer goods (only a few exceptions). It includes clothing, bags, construction and toys in addition to electrical and electronic consumer goods. The regulation does not apply to food, food packaging, fertilizers, medical equipment and tobacco, as well as fixtures on vehicles, for example, tyres and similar transportation accessories. 

The new regulation is on the restriction of 18 hazardous substances, among which two (Pb and Cd) are included in RoHS Directive, and eight are included in REACH restricted substances list.
