Hi,

Currently we are in collecting of RoHS certificates from manufacturers for the electrical parts used in our medical product. We have got some RoHS certificates with generic statement like,

"All current production"
"All our products"
"All our leaded parts"

Would it be acceptable as a standard practice? I request you to kindly share your view or any of experience on this.

Herewith i have attached these three scenario certificates for your perusal. Early responses are highly appreciable.

Thanks,
Muthukumar

I have run into the same thing.

If you are trying to follow EN 50581, it states "Such declarations or agreements shall cover a specific material, part and/or subassembly, or a specific range of materials, parts and/or sub-assemblies."

My take is that "All current production" etc. is a specific range of parts, just a very broad range. I'd be interested to see what others think.

Thanks for your valuable comments Jaydub.

While i was in discussion with one of our RoHS team, they told "this type of sentence is acceptable as long as there no other hidden traps like declaration may also have a sentence YYY series ending with so on so may or may not RoHS compliant"

Also some of manufacturer declare with caution like "this part is converted to RoHS from so on so date, the stock available with distributor may be RoHS/Non-RoHS, we are not responsible for that"

So in the attached certificates there are no such hidden traps and all parts were converted from 2005 onwards (i guess there may not have any non-RoHS part in stock).
