Certificates For Silicone Product Export

Although silicone products are relatively environmentally friendly, like other products, they still require environmental and safety certification. For example, gum, silicone baby bibs, and kitchen utensils, what certification qualifications do these silicone products need to pass in order to enter the market or export to Europe and America?


RoHS certification directive was born in January 2003, when the European Parliament and Council issued the Directive on Restricting the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electronic and Electrical Equipment (2002/95/EC Directive), marking the first time RoHS was introduced to the world. In 2005, the European Union supplemented 2002/95/EC with a 2005/618/EC resolution, which clearly defined the limit values for six harmful substances. The ROHS report is an environmental report that mainly detects six heavy metals: lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr (VI)), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). The RoHS directive lists a total of six harmful substances, including lead Pb, cadmium Cd, mercury Hg, hexavalent chromium Cr6+, polybrominated biphenyl ether PBDE, and polybrominated biphenyl PBB. The allowable content of lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) in the RoHS directive is 0.1% (1000ppm), and cadmium (cd) is 0.01% (100ppm). This limit is the legal basis for determining whether a product complies with the RoHS directive. The European Union officially implemented RoHS on July 1, 2006. In the future, electrical and electronic products that use or contain heavy metals, as well as flame retardants such as PBDE and PBB, will not be allowed to enter the EU market.
PAHs certification mainly detects polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are volatile hydrocarbons produced during the incomplete combustion of organic compounds such as coal, petroleum, wood, tobacco, and organic polymers. They are important environmental and food pollutants, and over 200 types of PAHs have been discovered so far. A considerable portion of them are carcinogenic, such as benzo alpha pyrene and benzo alpha anthracene. PAHs are widely distributed in the environment and can be found in every corner of our lives. Any place where organic matter is processed, discarded, burned or used may produce polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
REACH certification involves a much wider scope. Now it has been added to 168 tests, which are the EU Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Licensing and Restriction of Chemicals, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals is a chemical regulatory system established by the European Union and implemented on June 1, 2007. In fact, it will affect products and manufacturing processes in almost all industries, from mining to textile and clothing, light industry, electromechanical and other industries. This is a regulatory proposal involving chemical production, trade, and use safety. The regulation aims to protect human health and environmental safety, maintain and improve the competitiveness of the European Union chemical industry, and develop innovative capabilities for non-toxic and harmless compounds, prevent market fragmentation, increase transparency in chemical use, promote non animal experiments, and pursue sustainable social development. REACH has established the concept that society should not introduce new materials, products, or technologies if their potential hazards are uncertain.
FDA/LFGB certification FDA/LFGB mainly conducts tests on non food drugs, such as food contact materials, The FDA is a food certification report for the United States, LFGB is the food certification report of the European Union, FDA/LFGB are two completely different standards. FDA: is one of the implementing agencies established by the US government within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Department of Public Health (PHS). As a scientific management organization, The FDA’s responsibility is to ensure the safety of food, cosmetics, drugs, biologics, medical equipment, and radiation products produced or imported in the United States. It was one of the earliest federal agencies with a primary function of protecting consumers. This institution is closely related to the lives of every American citizen. Internationally, The FDA is recognized as one of the world’s food and drug regulatory agencies. Many other countries promote and monitor the safety of their domestic products by seeking and receiving assistance from the FDA. Director of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA): Supervision and inspection of food, drugs (including veterinary drugs), medical devices, food additives, cosmetics, animal food and drugs, wine beverages with alcohol content less than 7%, and electronic products; Testing, inspection, and certification of the impact of ionizing and non ionizing radiation generated during product use or consumption on human health and safety. According to regulations, the above-mentioned products must undergo FDA inspection to prove their safety before they can be sold in the market. The FDA has the right to inspect manufacturers and file lawsuits against violators.
