Similar to the CE marking of EU RoHS, under China RoHS, all items shipped to China must now be marked to indicate how they comply with the legislation. The Electronic Information Products (EIP) logo is used to mark products, parts and assemblies that do not contain unacceptable amounts of hazardous substances (as defined by the legislation), and are therefore considered environmentally safe. Products that do contain hazardous substances are marked with the same EIP logo, but are also marked with an Environment Friendly Use Period (EFUP) value.
Manufacturers and importers of electronic information products (EIPs) listed in Ministry of Information Industry of the People's Republic of China (MII) RoHS catalog must be labeled if they contain:
- Hexavalent Chromium
- Polybrominated Biphenyls
- Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers
The marking requirements for China RoHS: potentially a China RoHS mark; Environmental Protection Use Period (EPUP) table; the content and names of hazardous substances need to be disclosed in product instructions.
