Do you also have the RoHS certification? To sell your products in Europe we need to be RoHS compliant to assure that your products do not contain dangerous levels of the following hazardous substances:

Lead - (Pb)
Mercury - (Hg)
Hexavalent chromium - (Cr(VI))
Cadmium - (Cd)
Polybrominated biphenyl flame retardants - (PBB)
Polybrominated diphenyl ether flame retardants - (PBDE)

In case you already have it, would you mind publishing it?

Thank you.

We don't have the RoHS certification yet.

Even most of components, PCB and soldering process are RoHS certified, I think we need another procedure of RoHS certification.
I will check it with our agent and get back to you.

BTW, do you know where is the RPi or BBB RoHS certification documents?
It will be very helpful.

RoHS certification needs too much cost and time.
We don't have any plan yet because of very low demand of RoHS. Sorry.

Hello,
I have a serious problem with my last order (Mainly U3 boards) with your company, that other European customers will possibly have! The Portuguese customs asking for the CE certificate (LVD – Low Voltage directive) 2006/95/CE, that is mandatory in all the electronics products that enter Europe. I had send the EMC report and certificates that I found on the forums (and indicate by email from one of your colleagues) but they continue to say that what is need is the LVD certificate!

I had checked the U2 certificate, since I didn't have problems with the respective order, and is mentioned the two directives, LVD and EMC. Don't you have any thing similar for the U3???

This is becoming a serious problem, since if I do not supply the certificates the law in Portugal says that the products will not be delivered to the customer and will be destroyed, after one month...

I had also a problem with the invoice, and I gently ask you to correct your site. In Europe is very important to have different fields for the shipping address and for the billing address. In the invoice should only appear the billing address. Our problem was that the addresses are slightly different, two different buildings in the same University campus and now the Portuguese customs are complaining also about that....

Best regards,
Eduardo Pint

I will ask the LVD to our certification agent company soon.

You are the first customer who need the different shipping address and billing address.
I will forward this message to our sales team.

I'd love to have the ODROID-U3 be a candidate for a commercial project for us. But we'll require RoHS certification to be a viable candidate.
I see that on your website (http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 8745696275) you mention that to purchase in the EU once can do this in Germany from this website (http://www.pollin.de/shop/suchergebnis. ... g=internal).

Can you help me understand how you are selling this in Europe without RoHS certification. If there is an explanation that can be given, I would like to understand what it is so the ODROID-U3 can be a viable candidate for our commercial purposes.

Looking forward to your response,
David

In fact, we are learning the RoHS things now.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restrictio ... _Directive
According to above link, it seems not to be a restricted rule.

Anyway,
If all the component in the U3 are RoHS compliant and production line doesn't add any hazardous material, we can easily make the RoHS DoC(Declaration of Conformity).
But we are spending time to study the RoHS 1, 2 and 3 directives to make sure.
It is quite complicated thing. :(
Do you know well the process of RoHS DoC?

Hello,

I'd like to know, if Hardkernel already owns a RoHS certificate. I'm very interested in a commercial use of your ODROID-C1+ Board. In order to use it in a commercial way it is absolutely necessary, that the board and Hardkernel are compliant with RoHS.

Kind regards,

Josh
