Q: Does a part in scope of a RoHS exemption still need to be certified? Is it considered still in scope?
A: If a material is covered by a RoHS exemption, it is still in scope — but it has application-specific uses that may allow the use of restricted substances above threshold. The parts/materials that fall under an exemption must include supporting documentation to meet IEC 63000, just like any other part/materials that are in scope.
