    Norway PoHS Detection

    “PoHS” stands for "Prohibition on Certain Hazardous Substances in Consumer Products". On June 18 2007, Norway informed the WTO asking to manage "hazardous substances in consumer products", totally 18 substances, which was what we saw the PoHS regulations.
    PoHS regulation was scheduled to be entered into force on January 1, 2008, but it has been delayed because no consensus has yet been reached on many issues. In August 2008, after Norway SFT reviewed many comments, the restriction on chemicals form the initial proposal has been reduced from 18 to 10 substances. Some changes in the limit values and the extent of exemptions for the ten substances where it has been deemed possible to ensure necessary protection of health and environment have been proposed.

    PONY provides PoHS testing services
    Norway is not a member of European Community and European Union. Its environmental requirements are even more stringent than EU. Although this law only applies to Norway, but it may become the control standard for hazardous substances used for electronic and electrical products exported to Europe, for few companies will specially manufacture some certain products for some market, unless the company does not intend to sell products to Norway.
