Equipment Used - But Not Sold - In China

Question: My company manufactures a diagnostic test set that is used to simulate flight conditions in order to pinpoint static electricity issues in electrical parts and components for aerospace. We are shipping a unit to China to perform testing on an aircraft, and then shipping the equipment back to the U.S. once complete. Is this unit in scope of RoHS under these conditions?

Answer: If you are using the unit to perform a service, and the equipment will not remain in China, you are not putting the product on the market, so it would not need to be compliant with China RoHS2. You may wish to include shipping documentation indicating that the product will not be placed on the market, and the date it will be returning to the country of manufacture.
