A generic definition of a hazardous substance is provided by the Australian Safety and Compensation Council (ASCC) as “a substance which has the potential, through being used at work, to harm the health or safety of persons in the workplace”.
Control of Hazardous Substances
For the purpose of protecting the environment and human health, the Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment 2002/95/EC; commonly referred to as RoHS) was adopted in 2003 by the European Union. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become law in each member state. This directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and Electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the WasteElectrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling targets for electrical goods to solve the problem of huge amount of toxic e-waste.
There is no doubt that the use of chemicals in all fields speed up the development of human society, however, which also bring about potential influences to human body & the environment, then EU issued “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals” in March, 2003 aiming to standardize the application of chemicals.
Increased Hazardous Substances and Enlarged Application Area
More and more hazardous substances, such as halogen are brought under control along with the industry development. Other countries or regions also established a series of regulations to restrict the use of hazardous substances, like Proposition 65 and Chinese RoHS etc. .
