Singapore RoHS (SG-RoHS)

Singapore RoHS became law on June 1, 2017 by the Singapore Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR), and restricts the same 6 substances as under RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU). Singapore RoHS is much more lax than EU RoHS however in products are in scope, as follows:

In-Scope Products

Washing machines
Air conditioners
Portable computers
Mobile phones
Flat-panel TVs

All other products, including spare parts for the in-scope products listed below, are exempted.

A RoHS Declaration of Conformity (DoC) must be submitted to the National Environmental Agency (NEA), as well as a Technical File as per EU BS EN 50581:2012. No special marking is required for labelling products for sale in Singapore. EEE products in non-compliance can still be manufactured for export, but the manufacturer will need to apply for a hazardous substance licence from the NEA.
