First panel maker to obtain China RoHS certifications, CMI LCD modules pass China RoHS certification
Press release, December 21; Yvonne Yu, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 22 December 2010]

Chimei Innolux's (CMI's) Longhua subsidiary, the Innocom Technology (Shenzhen), in China has recently obtained two RoHS certifications from the China Electronics Standardization Institute (CESI), including the production and management of 1.36- to 10.2-inch LCD modules (LCMs) passing the China RoHS factory inspection, and the 1.36- to 4.3-inch LCMs obtaining the China RoHS product voluntary certification. CMI is the first panel maker to obtain the certifications. Being first to establish the China RoHS certification management system gives CMI an advantage to be active in the supply chain, receiving related policy support, obtaining priority in government procurements, and being first to capture market opportunities.

As one of the first companies to participate in the China RoHS voluntary certification program, CMI is prepping its supply chain in coordination with the Electronic Information Products Pollution Control Technology Center and CESI Certification Center to establish comprehensive systems for control of hazardous substances and quality assurance.

The advantages of obtaining China RoHS voluntary certification include being the first to establish a RoHS certification management system, combining RoHS testing and product certification to increase third-party credibility. It also gives CMI an active position in the supply chain. The result of China RoHS voluntary certification for materials and parts provides admissibility for whole-unit compulsory product certification required by the next tier of suppliers in the supply chain, reducing customers' whole-unit certification cost and reducing time-to-market. In addition, when customers are required to obtain China RoHS compulsory certification, CMI can quickly respond to meet that requirement, enabling customers' products to capture market opportunities first. The China RoHS voluntary certification also not only makes it easier to receive national policy-related support but also priority in government procurements.
