Restriction of all Hazardous Substances

Fairstock provides ISO Testing services through our 3rd party certified testing laboratory partners. We can offer certified visual and electrical testing reports to verify that the functionality and qualities of the devices you order are in accordance with specification.

All sectors within the obsolete electronic component industry need to ensure that each inspector is trained with the unique techniques and attributes to detect counterfeit parts, due to the increasing number of counterfeit components on the market. Conventional inspection techniques for electronic components do not incorporate the tests needed to identify suspect counterfeit parts. We work with only well-known and highly reliable electronic component testing laboratories who have years of experience in electronic inspection. This allows us to be confident when offering guarantees and aids us in evaluating our vendors. We often perform spot checks with vendors to ensure they consistently provide excellent quality products.

Visual and Electrical tests are performed to all customers, and we perform various additional tests and inspections when necessary. All processes are performed by a Components Test Laboratory which is certified as ISO 9001:2008 and as an AS9100-C complaint organisation as well. We can meet your testing needs for most types of electronic components and simulate a test environment based on your needs. Below is a list of common tests which we often undertake, if necessary. Other device specific tests can be provided upon request.

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) also known as Directive 2002/95/EC was set up by the European Union to control the use of specific hazardous materials found in electronic products. It restricts the use of six different hazardous materials in the manufacturing process for electronic and electrical equipment.

These substances include:

  • Lead (Pb)
  • Mercury (Hg)
  • Cadmium (Cd)
  • Chromium (Cr)
  • Bromine Compounds (Br)

We can perform X-ray fluorescence (XRF) testing on a wide range of electronics. This will ensure you are provided with the correct standard of product you require.

The non-destructive chemical elemental analysis testing in accordance with SAE AS6081 irradiates the device with charged particles and analyses wavelengths emitted.
