CONFORMITY UKRAINE ROHS

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 with the European Union version. The amended Decree was assigned a new number: 139. The Decree no 139, also known as Ukraine RoHS, repealed the Decree no 1057.

The Enviropass Approach for Ukraine RoHS Testing

Two options are available: 

  • Classic Ukraine RoHS
  • Deluxe Ukraine RoHS

Classic Ukraine RoHS

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).

Deluxe Ukraine RoHS

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

The Ukraine RoHS scope is essentially the same as EU RoHS.  It applies to:

Ukraine RoHS
  • Large appliances
  • Small appliances
  • IT and telecommunications equipment
  • Household electronics 
  • Lighting equipment
  • Electrical and electronic tools 
  • Toys, leisure and sports equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Monitoring and control devices
  • Automatic dispensers
  • Other equipment not covered by the previous categories

How to be Ukraine RoHS Compliant?

Alongside Europe RoHS (EU Directive 2011/65/EU), ten hazardous substances are restricted:

  • Lead (Pb) and its compounds
  • Cadmium (Cd) and its compounds
  • Mercury (Me) and mercury compounds
  • Hexavalent chromium (Cr 6+)
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs)
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)
  • Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP)
  • Di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP)
  • Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
  • Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)

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.

Example of the Ukrainian conformity mark

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.
