High Quality is Based on Completed Certifications in PCBMay.
PCBMay insists on “Quality is the life”, currently, we’re fully ISO9001:2008, ISO 14001:2015, UL, RoHS, and REACH certificated.
What is ISO 9001:2015
What does ISO 9001 stand for?ISO 9001 is the international standard for creating a Quality Management Systems (QMS),published by ISO (the International Organization for Standardization).
The standard was most recently updated in 2015 and it is referred to as ISO 9001:2015.
In order to be released and updated,ISO 9001 had to be agreed upon by a majority of member countries so that it would become an internationally recognized standard,which means it is accepted by a majority of countries worldwide.
What is ISO 14001:2015
ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS).
It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.
Part of the ISO 14000 family of standards on environmental management,ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard that organizations can certify to.
Integrating it with other management systems standards,most commonly ISO 9001,can further assist in accomplishing organizational goals.
What is UL Certification
UL stands for Underwriter Laboratories,a third-party certification company that’s been around for over a century.
UL was founded in 1894 in Chicago.They certify products with the aim to make the world a safer place for both workers and consumers.
Besides testing,they set industry standards to follow when innovating new products.
Last year alone,about 14 billion products with the UL seal entered the global marketplace
PCBMay has USA UL and Canada UL,whose number is E477880
What is RoHS Compliant
RoHS is a product level compliance based on the European Union’s Directive 2002/95/EC,the Restriction of the Use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS).
Products compliant with this directive do not exceed the allowable amounts of the following restricted materials: lead,mercury,cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE),with some limited exemptions.
What is REACH Compliant
REACH Compliance is based on the standard Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals which establishes policy and procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of chemical substances.
The standard requires that chemicals,on their own,in a mixture or solution, or in an article manufactured, imported, and placed on the market, must be registered through the ECHA.
This compliance is intended for companies that manufacture and distribute chemicals or products containing chemical substances (called “articles”) in the EU, in quantities of 1 ton or greater.
Only companies with a legal entity in Europe can submit a registration under REACH; however, non-EU companies may submit REACH registration by appointing a third-party REACH Only Representative to register on their behalf.
