The meaning of RoHS is Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances.
You can choose three types of services as needed for your RoHS 3 Europe testing of CE marking certification under the current RoHS directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2), including the 2015/863/EU amendment (so called RoHS 3)
Most complex products benefit from exemptions, that should be monitored by the manufacturers since they may be modified, replaced or removed, like the expired RoHS exemption 7c-iii:
CLASSIC EU ROHS
With Classic EU RoHS, you allow Expertise Enviropass to undertake the documentary assessment of your products.
A Certificate of Conformity is issued for each product in compliance with the requirements of Europe RoHS.
DELUXE EU ROHS
Deluxe EU RoHS does not only provide you with fishes… but also teaches you how to fish! Indeed Deluxe EU RoHS includes:

You must ensure compliance with restricted substances thresholds, and monitor any reported exemptions.
In the vast majority of cases for PCBA and complex products, the documentation review from suppliers and subcontractors is the best option because unlike chemical analysis or other analytical tests (i.e. XRF testing), it enables:
Since its introduction, the standard EN 50581 / IEC 63000 - Technical documentation for the assessment of electrical and electronic products with respect to the restriction of hazardous substances - recommends the documentary approach with suppliers, which is recognized by both industry and enforcement authorities.
In the absence of sufficient documentation for a component, a risk analysis is conducted and recommendations are given (either chemical analysis or component replacement). Chemical analysis is therefore taken as a last resort, only after a careful documentary review, and focuses on uncertain homogeneous materials only.
With EU RoHS, it is mandatory to build technical file showing the method for verifying a product’s compliance.
The technical documentation must contain specific information documented in the procedure.
RoHS like regulations have been published worldwide, including in the some US States:
