RoHS /WEEE certification

European Union RoHS Regulation (RoSH Directive 2002/95/EC) and WEEE Regulation (WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC) have become official laws of European Union since February 13, 2003. Under WEEE Directive, the manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment are directly responsible in the legal sense for the disposal of the waste of their products sold in the EU market since August 13, 2005. Under RoHS Directive, since July 1, 2006, all electronic and electrical equipment sold in the EU market are prohibited with the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, six valence chromium and other heavy metals, as well as flame retardants such as PBDE and PBB. Because these two legislations will greatly affect China's exports of electronic products to the EU market, domestic relevant industries pay high attention and take active measures to ensure that these two environmental protection legislations will not cause substantial damage to China’s exports of electronic and electrical products.

ROHS is the abbreviation of Restriction of Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in EEE. The so-called ROHS Directive is the EU Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive adopted by the European Parliament and the Council in 2003.

 WEEE is the abbreviation of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE Directive refers to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive passed by European Parliament and the Council.

 Hazardous substance of electronic and electrical product: Pb, Hg, Cd, Cr6+, PBB and PBDE etc. The value of the flame retardant shall not exceed the prescribed limit

Prescribed limit: Pb1000ppm, Hg1000ppm, Cd100ppm, Cr(VI)1000ppm, PBB1000ppm, PBDE1000ppm

A.Material chemical testing

According with each homogeneous material, chemical testing does sampling, pre-treatment and testing, and the data is accurate;

 B.XRF scanning: total Pb、Cd、Hg、Cr、Br;

 C.Product chemical testing + XRF scanning

Product RoHS testing splits multiple homogeneous materials testing. It uses XRF to determine hazardous element, and does chemical testing according to the chemical testing process.

Battery Certification Services

CQC Voluntary Certification

CQC mark battery certification, one of the voluntary product certification businesses of China Quality Certification Center, is a verification of battery’s compliance with quality, safety, performance, EMC and other relevant certification requirements by using CQC mark. On August 1, 2015, China's first lithium ion mandatory standard GB 31241-2014 Lithium Ion Cells and Batteries Used in Portable Electronic Equipments-Safety Requirements was formally implemented, which has widely promoted the battery certification in China. As a designated national laboratory for CQC certification, CCIC-SET is able to offer CQC mark battery certification services, covering various product types such as electric bicycle lithium ion batteries, portable electronic product lithium ion batteries, and portable mobile power supply.

CB Battery Certification

CB scheme established by IECEE (IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components) is the global system of mutual recognition for electrical products. The Scheme is based on the principle of mutual recognition by its members of test results for obtaining certification or approval at national level, intended to reduce obstacles to international trade which arise from having to meet different national certification or approval criteria. 

North America UL, FCC and CSA Battery Certification

North American certification (voluntary) is primarily based on the requirements of laws and regulations. For example, US NRTL certification system is based on the CFR29 regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) affiliated to U.S. Department of Labor (US DOL); FCC certification is based on CFR49 regulated by Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Obtaining certification from any of the NRTLs, such as UL, CSA, and ENTELA, electric and electronic products on the list of CFR29 will be considered in conformity with North American laws and regulations.

Food Laboratory

CCIC-SET food laboratory holds CMAF and CNAS accreditations. Since the foundation in 2014, the food lab has developed a team of specialists who have both strong theoretical background and rich working experiences.

CCIC-SET food lab can provide testing for metal, ceramic, glass, enamel, plastic, rubber, silicone, elastomer, paper, bamboo, wood and various coating materials which are used in different food contact products such as tableware, kitchenware, kitchen appliances, children's products, food packaging products, food production machinery, and food transportation equipment. Testing items cover sensory analysis, microbial, overall migration, metal elements content and migration, monomer content and migration, color migration, peroxide value, volatile organic compounds, physical and chemical properties, etc.

Laboratory equipment:

Our laboratory owns state-of-art equipment for chemical analysis:

(LC-ICP-MS),(ICP),(AAS),(IC),(HPLC),(HPLC-MS-MS),(GC-MS),(GC),(TGA-IR-GC-MS),(TGA),(IR),(UV-Visible spectrophotometer),(XRF),(Soxhlet),(High-pressure microwave digestion workstation),(Grinding Apparatus),(thermostat),(incubator),(rotary evaporators),(centrifuge),(autoclave sterilizer),(muffle)、超声萃取仪,(ultrasonic extractor),(microwave digestion system),(pH meter),(conductivity meter),(melting point apparatus),(density meter)etc.

With those instruments, we can conduct sampling preparation (extraction, digestion, burning of high temperature, sterile cultivation, etc.) and do analysis according to customer’s needs.


So far, food contact materials have a very wide application in people’s daily life. However, studies have shown that harmful constituents of these materials can “migrate” into the packaged food depending on various environment and foodstuff and thus pose risks to consumers. Concerns over this issue are on increase. Governments also continually implement and update regulation of food contact materials to safeguard consumer’s health and safety.

In 2005, EU released Regulation 1935/2004/EC as a new regulation for food contact materials and articles (Full name: Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 October 2004 on Materials and Articles Intended to Come into Contact with Food). This Regulation has been enforced since 27 October 2004 regulating that food contact materials should be safe and should not transfer their components into the foodstuff with unacceptable quantities which could endanger human health; should not bring about an unacceptable change in the composition of the food; and should not bring about deterioration in the sensory characteristics (such as taste, odor, color, etc.). 

Regulation 1935/2004 / EC lays down the general regulating framework for food contact materials and products in EU. Following this regulation, EU continued to issue Directive 84/500/EEC for ceramics and Directive 93/10/EEC for regenerated cellulose film., The Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) published Directive 2005/79/EC on November 19, 2005 and Directive 2007/19/EC on March 31, 2007, the former to update Directive 2002/72/EC and the latter to Directive 85/572/EEC. In addition to strictly adopting Regulation 2004/1935/EC, some member states also implement their local food regulations, such as German LFGB and French DGCCRF 2004-64 and French Décret nº 92-631.

LFGB also referred to as “Food, Tobacco Products, Cosmetics and other Commodities Administration Law” is the fundamental law in Germany for food hygiene regulation. It lays down the principles and core requirements for the formulation of other specialized food and hygiene laws and regulations. In recent years, it has also been modified mainly for the purpose of matching related European standards.

LFGB regulates all kinds of materials including those manufactured via the latest techniques; typically they are ceramics, synthetic plastics, PVC, plasticizer, paper, leather, textiles, cosmetics, tobacco and so on.

Product types include: food contact electrical products such as toaster, sandwich oven, electric kettle; food storage articles; kitchen utensils such as tempered glass cutting board and stainless steel kettle; tableware articles such as bowl, knife, fork, spoon, and coaster

Food contact materials or products to be sold in French should comply with not only EU Regulation 1935/2004/EC but also French local relevant regulations such as French DGCCRF 2004-64 and French Décret nº 92-631. French regulations follow the requirements of EU regulations for plastic, rubber, and ceramic glass products. However, they do have local special requirements for metal products. To take cooking utensils with organic coating as an example, both their coating surface and base metal must be tested according to relevant standards. In addition, requirements, typically for metallic composition and heavy metal migration limit, also vary depending on specific metal materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, cast iron, aluminum, aluminum alloy, etc. So French regulations for this part are more complicated than in other countries. We should notice that according to the French regulation food contact materials shall not contain brass.

The United States regulates most of the food contact materials and products mainly through Food Additives Petition (FAP). A food contact material, when permitted for usage only by FAP, will be recorded in the corresponding regulation of United States FDA CFR 21 parts 170-180. Japan and South Korea also have their laws for food contact materials.

The “Knife and Fork” logo is a sign for food safety. Appearing on food contact products, it indicates that the product has been tested to German and European standards and proven to contain no harmful substances to consumer’s health in compliance with German LFGB regulation. Thus the product can be sold in German and other European and American markets. On the European market, this logo is a powerful marketing tool which can enhance customer confidence and purchase desire to greatly increase the product competitiveness.

Our testing services can meet the requirements of many countries and regions.
