Lead standards of progress
     European Union (EU) RoHS Directive (Prohibition in the electronic and electrical equipment in the use of the six hazardous substances directive) have come into force, but the story is far from over. Lead metal is subject to the RoHS directive prohibiting the six basic materials and the most thorough study of a substance. In the electronic assembly, likely in the lead-pin surface of the device may also appear in the PCB pad, or for solder joint formation of the alloy material. A solder alloy composition changes often need to process materials and devices at the same time, to ensure the reliability of electronic product manufacturing. Electronic interconnection industry recognition of standards (normative) is the basis for the implementation of RoHS, and other related materials restrictions norms in the rest of the world has also been widely entry into force. 

    The electronics industry from their experiences learned a lot, it can help promote the standardization of enormous changes for the process. Even the accumulation of years of experience, challenges remain.

    Some challenges from the legislature. EU members still in the implementation of this directive for unyielding struggle. By trying to answer a series of problems arising from the regulations, as well as guidance after the need to provide various text (in different languages) to answer these questions, there is still understanding of the differences between the…… many rounds of exemptions has been approved, the relevant discussions are continuing. EU RoHS Directive electronic interconnection of the global supply chain impact is much greater than expected. Continue to increase in the availability of information, but many enterprises are still not clear on whether they effective laws and regulations. 

    Help the industry understand standardized information is part of the mission of IPC. Following a number of new standards and revised standards of information, designed to help industry meet RoHS requirements, and more effectively compete in the global market in a favourable position.
