4.1.2 China ROHS
China RoHS officially known as Administrative Measure on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products (the "Administrative Measure"), which became effective on March 1, 2007. It restricts hazardous substances (mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, cadmium, PBB and PBDE) in Electronic Information Products placed in China market.
China RoHS is implemented in a two-step process:
Step One: As of March 1, 2007, Electronic information products placed in China market should make self declaration through the means specified in “Marking for control of pollution caused by electronic information products” according to the “Administrative Measure”.
 Step Two: At a later date, Electronic Information Products will be listed in “the Catalogue of Electronic Information Products for Key Pollution Control” according to the “Administrative Measure”, which will be strictly restricted on the use of hazardous substances and required China Compulsory Certification (CCC). 

4.1.3 SVHC
As the regulation constantly updates, there will be more harmful substances to be included in SVHC candidate list. EU strictly controls SVHC, which certainly will raise the export cost of home appliance, textile, toy and other industry. The notification of SVHC has become a obligation of exporters to certify the safety of their products. Therefore, with the impending requirement for the notification of SVHC, the relevant enterprises need to strengthen response to it. 
Since the establishment of REACH by EU in 2007, SVHC list keeps on updating. Related materials have wide influence in the product and processing methods in industries including mechanical, automobile, chemical engineering, civil engineering. To on December 17, 2014, the SVHC list item add to 161.

4.1.4 Phthalate Testing
The EU began restricting phthalates in consumer products on December 14, 2005.  Initially under directive 2005/84/EC, and later incorporated into Annex 17 of REACH, phthalates are tested using GC-MS according to test method EPA3540C.  Anbotek tests for the following phthalates:
Di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP)
Di-isononyl phthalate (DINP)
Di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP)
Di-n-octyl phthalate (DNOP)

4.1.5 Norway PoHS Detection
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.

4.1.6 PFOA
PFOA and its salt, including home appliance surface treatment (anti-oil), convenient food package etc, are susceptible to be as hazardous as PFOS. EU parliament has made restrictions on PFOS and PFOA, asking to look for substitute material or method. The potential hazard has also arisen attention of FDA and PFOA has been listed in state of California as carcinogenic material.

On 27 December 2006, the European Parliament and the Council published directive restrictions on the marketing and use of certain dangerous substances and preparations (perfluorooctane sulfonates) (2006/122/EC). The directive was effective immediately.
Member States shall adopt and publish, not later than 27 December 2007, the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive;
■ All member state shall apply these measures from 27 June 2008;
■ Fire-fighting foams that have been placed on the market before 27 December 2006 can be used until 27 June 2011;
■ Not later than 27 December 2008 Member States shall establish and communicate to the Commission an inventory that covers processes that are subject to derogation in electroplating industryand the amounts of PFOS used in and released from them, and existing stocks of fire-fighting foams containing PFOS. 

Perfluoroctane sulfonates were initially restricted in Europe through directive 2006/122/EC before being incorporated in Annex 17 of REACH.  LC-MS-MS is used to identify the presence and quantities of PFOS in consumer products.

4.1.7 Halogen Testing
Halogen products currently used mainly for flame retardant halogen compounds, such as PBB, PBDE, TBBP-A, PCB, HBCCD, SCCP.
Anbotek uses Ion Chromatography to determine levels of chlorine, bromine, iodine, and fluorine.  Many industries are restricting halogens in their products due to concerns over their ozone-depleting properties as well as other environmental hazards. Though halogens are commonly used in products for their flame retardant qualities, many companies strive to render their products halogen-free.

4.1.8 PAHS
In view of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) posing a risk to human health and animal and plant, AtAV Committee of Central Experience Exchange Office of German Security Technology Certification Center (ZLS) requests that PAHs testing shall be imposed to GS Mark Certification. Other countries and regions have restricted PAHs content by the written law or decree, such as: EU 76/769/EEC; the U.S. EPA; Chinese GB, GB / T, GHZ.
Central Experience Exchange Office (ZEK) AtAV Committee under German Safety Technology Certification Center (ZLS) passed decision (See No. ZEK 01-08 Document posted on ZLS’ official website) on November 20th, 2007, requiring PAHs testing to be mandatorily incorporated into GS Mark certification as from April 1st, 2008 when all GS Mark certification bodies started testing PAHs items.
Mandatory PAHs testing for German GS certification
Although pervious PAHs testing were voluntary, not part of GS certification, there are two recalls in Germany: first, substances found in the wires, chassis and handle in grinding machine; second, PAHs compounds found in non-slip plastic layer of hammer. After the establishment of new regulation, products that do not pass PAHs testing will not obtain GS certification and cannot be sold in Germany.
PAHs limitation criteria:
PAHs limit values for consumer goods (food contact material, materials which may be put into mouth, toys and children care products) follows:


Parameters

Category 1

Category 2

Category 3

Materials intended to be put in the mouth or materials of toys for long-term skin contact ( longer than 30 seconds )

4.1.9 WEEE
From August 2005 the EU begun to implementation of the "Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment" (WEEE). In this early in the 2003 Act had been in force regulations, manufacturers (including importers and distributors) must pay for their own retirement products bear the responsibility for cost recovery in the legal sense. With the deepening of the implementation of the EU RoHS and WEEE directives, domestic and international importers and distributors for the concrete implementation of the WEEE Directive increasingly urgent demand.

4.2.1Toys
China as a large toy manufacturing and exporting country has a good sales history around the world. However some of the “made in China” toys were recalled occasionally, so people wonder why this happened. Because the quality of toy directly related to children health, all countries and organizations set up different safety regulations for toys, with frequent updates. Such as international ISO 8124 standard, EU 88/378/EEC directive and EN-71 standard, US ASTM F963 standard, Japan ST2002 standard, China GB6675-2003 national compulsory standard effective since October 1 2004.
The quality of toy products, in the fierce international toy market competition, will directly influence the sales of china toy in the market at home and abroad. So domestic toy enterprises shall strengthen quality control and improve product safety and quality. Based on strong technical capability and good reputation, Anbotek could provide superior testing service for many kinds of the toys.

Mandatory national standard <China National General Safety Standard> GB 18401-2003 came into effect since January 1 2005. Since then, disqualified clothing textiles can not be sold. According to Oeko-Tex Standard 100, GB18401, ASTM, ISO, AATCC, EN, JIS and other standards, Anbotek can provide related testing services.
pH Value
The pH value of human skin ranges between 4.5 and 6.0. During the aging process, human skin becomes less acidic and more vulnerable. Consequently, pH value of clothing affects consumers’ health.
 Formaldehyde
Formaldehyde is used in textile as anti-shrinking, anti-creasing agent. This volatile compound is easy to release from the textiles, and causing damage to our health, especially to our respiratory system.

 

Extractable heavy metals


 Sb

As

Pb

Cd

Cr

Co

Cu

Ni

Hg

Cr VI

Heavy metals are absorbed by plants through soil, and introduced into the textiles in the finishing and dying process. Once absorbed by humans, heavy metals accumulate in organs. The highly accumulated heavy metals cause severe damage to one’s health. We use artificial perspiration to extract heavy metals and determine their content in textiles.

Azo / Allergenic / Carcinogenic Dyes
Dyes released from textiles can enter into the human organism. Azo is widely used in textiles and leathers, some of which are considered to be toxic when converted into aromatic amines. Disperse dye is minute and passes through human skin, which can be allergenic and/or carcinogenic.

Phthalates
Phthalates are commonly added into plastics and paintings as plasticizers. Research shows that some kinds of phthalates cause hazardous effects to young children.

Organic Tin Compounds
Organic Tin is used in inner material, gloves and baby-care products as an anti-microbial agent. High concentrations of organic tin may be absorbed through skin and affect the nervous system.

Color Fastness
Color Fastness is a basic requirement of textiles and is a reflection to quality. Not only does the fading of dye affect the apparel’s appearance, but also the dye may be absorbed. Color fastness regulated in Eco-Textile tests includes the color fastness to water, perspiration (acid / alkaline), rubbing (dry / wet) and saliva (for babies). Color fastness to saliva and to perspiration is of particular concern in baby’s apparel.

4.4.2 Footwear/Leather Product Testing
European Commission resolution No. 2009/563/EC issued on July 28, 2009 establishes new rules for EU’s footwear eco-label, and 2002/231/EC currently in force will become invalid on March 31st, 2010. These revised new rules emphasize that the covered footwear includes the fixed external sole touching the ground and the apparel for protecting or covering feet.
The new regulations aims at controlling the use of VOC and toxic residues, and also spreading to a wider range. For instance, suppliers need to make sure there is no hexavalent chromium in foodwear/leather products, by submitting EN ISO 17075 testing reports to prove it. Meanwhile, suppliers need to submit testing reports proving there is no arsenic cadmium and lead in products. Meanwhile, in footwear and textile components, the free formaldehyde must be as small as non-detectable, and shoe letter parts are no more than 150ppm.
For the usage of hazardous substances, the resolution banned the use of pentachlorophenol (PCP) and tetrachloro-phenol, aromatic amines and other 22 kinds of azo dyes in the list. In addition, the content of nitrosamines in the rubber must be small to non-detectable.
In addition, the resolution also contains provisions of the final product packaging. Cardboard boxes should use 100% recycled materials, plastic bags must contain at least 75% of recycle materials, or to be biodegradable or corruptible material. In addition, suppliers must also provide ways to protect the environment and how to get more information about the EU eco-labels.
Anbotek is equipped with cutting-edge technology and expert team in the field of footwear/leather product testing and can provide multidimensional one-stop testing services covering footwear and leather products by means of rich experience in this industry, including but not limited to:
Pesticides preservatives and dyeing carriers:such as chlorophenasic acid, 2, 3, 4, 6- tetrachlorophenol, 2, 4, 5- trichlorophenol, 2, 4- dichlorophenol, 2- chlorophenol, hexachlorobenzene, phenol, diphenol etc.

4.5.2 Food Contact Material Testing
Commodities contacting with food such as the kitchen, household supplies, food packaging materials, contain hazardous chemical substances which will migrate into the food, and will harm human health. For example, PFCs could enter food via anti-oil packaging, which may result in an increase of PFCs level up to 700 times of that of the FDA.China, the European Union and the United States and other countries have put the appropriate laws and regulations to prevent food contact materials endangering human health. As a partner to ensure your product quality, PONY TEST has carried out a comprehensive food-grade contact materials testing according to the requirements of EU / USA / South Korea and other countries. Following are food contacting materials stipulated by different countries as reference.
