On December 3rd, 2008, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine promulgated the Decree no 1057 ‘Regulation on limitation of usage of certain hazardous substances in electric and electronic equipment’. On March 17th, 2017, the Decree was amended to add four phthalates for greater harmonization to its European Union cousin version. The amended Decree was assigned a new number: 139. The Decree no 139, also known as Ukraine RoHS, repealed the Decree no 1057.
Two options are available:
Here, you can let Enviropass take over the entire project. If you are already EU RoHS compliant, Enviropass can assess your technical file and prepare your Declaration of Conformity (DoC).
This option allows Enviropass to assist you with your DoC and to provide you with the necessary training so that you can subsequently manage Ukraine RoHS compliance for your other products.
The Ukraine RoHS scope is essentially the same as EU RoHS. It applies to:
Alongside Europe RoHS (EU Directive 2011/65/EU), ten hazardous substances are restricted:
None of these substances must exceed the concentrations thresholds of 0,1%, except cadmium which has a more restrictive threshold of 0,01%. EU RoHS types of exemptions apply. A footnote at the end of annexes 3 and 4 of Ukraine RoHS emphasizes that the exemption numbers correspond to those of Directive 2011/65/EU.
Another similarity with EU RoHS is that a declaration of conformity (DoC) must be completed. The DoC must be drafted in Ukrainian. If it is completed in another language, it is necessary to provide a copy in Ukrainian.
If compliant, a mark must be placed in a conspicuous location following the Decree no 1184 “description of a conformity sign to technical regulations, rules and conditions of its drawing”. This conformity mark, which is, this time, different from the EU CE marking, is also known as UkrSEPRO.
