TPP Application Update

TPP has added an XML API feature for the reporting of RoHS II (2011/65/EU) compliance including the amendment added by Directive (EU) 2015/863. The change was implemented in the TPP XML API test account May 23rd, 2019 to allows customers to implement the feature before the amendment takes effect July 22nd, 2019.

The attribute RoHS10 was added to the parts elements for material content response and reflects the RoHS II compliance status to current 6 RoHS II substances and the 4 phthalates added by Directive (EU) 2015/863. The 10 indicates the current number of substances restricted.
