OEHHA. The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment is the lead state agency for the assessment of health risks posed by environmental contaminants. OEHHA’s mission is to protect and enhance the health of Californians and the state’s environment through scientific evaluations that inform, support and guide regulatory and other actions. OEHHA implements the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as Proposition 65, and compiles the state’s list of substances that cause cancer or reproductive harm. Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water. Products that sold, distributed or transfered into California shall carry a clear and reasonable warning label. Each warning must be preceded with a warning symbol consisting of a black exclamation point in a yellow equilateral with a bold, black outline.
‹•› Proposition 65 protects the state's drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals. The list contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals include additives or ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, drugs, dyes, or solvents. Listed chemicals may also be used in manufacturing and construction, or they may be byproducts of chemical processes, such as motor vehicle exhaust.
OSHA: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. Congress established the agency under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, which President Richard M. Nixon signed into law on December 29, 1970 to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. The OSHA Act covers most private sector employers in all 50 states. OSHA had federal visitorial powers to inspect and examine workplaces and by law, employers must provide their workers with a workplace that does not have serious hazards and must follow all OSH Act safety and health standards. Employers must find and correct safety and health problems. The OSH Act further requires that employers must first try to eliminate or reduce hazards by making feasible changes in working conditions rather than relying on personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves, or earplugs. Switching to safer chemicals, enclosing processes to trap harmful fumes, or using ventilation systems to clean the air are examples of effective ways to eliminate or reduce risks.
REACH: Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals is a European Union regulation dating from 18 December 2006. REACH addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. REACH (EC 1907/2006) aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. This is done by the four processes of REACH, namely the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals. REACH also aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
RoHS (2002/95/EC): Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive. RoHS has its roots in the European Union back in 2003. The goal of RoHS is to reduce the environmental effect and health impact of electronics. The legislation's primary purpose is to make electronics manufacturing safer at every stage of an electronic device's life cycle. It was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union. RoHS compliance means that a product has been tested for 10 banned substances by an independent authority, and that the tests confirmed levels of the substances below the RoHS threshold. Note on the drawing: A RoHS Certificate of Compliance is Required.
RoHS (2011/65/EU), known as RoHS 2 Directive, is a recast of the first EU RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC. The new Directive came into force on the 21st of July, 2011 and was aligned with the New Legislative Framework. It lays down the rules on the restriction of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). Such hazardous materials are, for example, mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyls, dibutyl phthalate, diisobutyl phthalate, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and others. They can be challenging to manage at the end of the product’s life cycle, and because of that the Directive restricts their use at the initial stage, i.e. during product’s manufacturing, and helps to keep them out of the waste stream. In the table below, you can see the maximum concentration allowance of the mentioned hazardous substances.
RoHS 3 2015/863EU) expands the list of prohibited substances from six to ten by adding four new types of phthalates (*). This directive has been adopted by the EU legislature and came into full force on the 22nd of July 2019 with a special provision for medical devices until 2021. On July 22, 2019, RoHS 3 was put into effect and now all electrical and electronic equipment on the EU market must act in accordance with the new restrictions. Imposition of the RoHS 3 regulations on medical devices and monitoring & controls instruments from categories 8 and 9 will go into effect on July 22, 2021. Category 8 in-vitro diagnostic medical devices (IVDs) exemption deadline is July 21, 2021. Category 9 industrial monitoring & control instruments; Category 11 products examption deadline is July 21, 2024.
* Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more durable. They are often called plasticizers. Some phthalates are used to help dissolve other materials. Phthalates are in hundreds of products, such as vinyl flooring, lubricating oils, and personal-care products (soaps, shampoos, hair sprays). Phthalates is toxic can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system.
The substances and restriction thresholds covered under these Directives are:
