The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia targets the same first six substances of EU RoHS :
The general concentration threshold limits of these substances are also the same: 0.1 %, at the homogeneous material level, barring cadmium, at 0.01 %.
However, some materials benefit from exemptions, such as lead in high melting temperature type solders (lead-based alloys containing 85 % by weight or more lead).
The scope is narrower than the EU one. For example, unlike Europe, Saudi Arabia RoHS does not regulate medical devices. Weapons & military equipment, and large-scale stationary industrial tools, are out of scope, which is also the case with EU RoHS.
Saudi Arabia RoHS covers the six following product categories:
1) Large and small household appliances.
2) Information and communication technology equipment
3) Lighting equipment
4) Electrical and electronic tools and equipment
5) Games, entertainment equipment and devices, and sports equipment.
6) Monitoring and control tools.
The drafted regulation lists relevant standard specifications that are recognized by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including:
The regulation annexes detail the expected RoHS technical documents and procedure. In particular, the conformity assessment form (Type 1a), according to IEC / ISO 17067 - Conformity assessment — Fundamentals of product certification and guidelines for product certification schemes, requires:
If the product is deemed RoHS compliant, the supplier will draft a Declaration of Conformity (DoC). Such DoC must meet the blank form in Annex 4 of the Saudi RoHS regulation.
The manufacturer must keep a copy of the Type Approval Certificate and archive the technical documentation for ten years.
