The EU RoHS directive is a CE marking directive. This means that by affixing the Conformité Européenne (CE) mark, you are certifying that the product meets all requirements of the respective CE marking law (e.g. Radio Equipment Directive, Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive, Low Voltage Directive, RoHS Directive, etc.). Companies should verify that on-product CE markings are up-to-date and cover the expanded list of currently restricted RoHS substances, not only the original six.
A CE mark does not negate the requirement for a declaration of conformity (DOC) under EU RoHS. A DOC is required for all products in scope of CE marking laws and must include the harmonized standards used to meet the requirements of the respective laws. The only harmonized standard for the RoHS Directive is EN 63000 (IEC 63000).
