Intertek offers end-to-end solutions to rapidly and cost-effectively fulfill the requirements of H.R. 2420: The Environmental Design of Electrical Equipment Act (EDEE) Act.

On May 14, 2009, H.R. 2420, the Environmental Design of Electrical Equipment Act (EDEE) Act, was introduced as a Bill in the US House of Representatives. The EDEE Act states that no electro-industry product shall be manufactured or imported after July 1, 2010 that contains a concentration value greater than 0.1 percent (10%) by weight of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) as measured in any homogenous material contained in the electro-industry product, or a concentration value greater than 0.01 percent of cadmium as measured in any homogenous material contained in the electro-industry product.

The EDEE Act will be implemented as an amendment to the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976. One of the reasons for the proposed Bill is to establish one uniform, federal regulation to prevent disparity between the fifty US States, as a few states have already implemented state-level RoHS type restrictions. This Bill currently sits with the Committee on Energy and Commerce waiting for approval.
