China RoHS 2
Management Methods for Restricted Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products, otherwise known as China RoHS 2, is a regulation that came into in effect on July 1, 2016. China RoHS 2 consists of two phases.
Phase I labeling requirements - all Electrical and Electronic Information Products (EEP) must be properly labeled according to the China RoHS standards. Phase I is effective July 1, 2016.
Phase II catalog requirements - EEP listed in the China RoHS 2 catalog (which will be a list of specific products or product categories) must comply with China’s substance restrictions as defined in China’s maximum concentration value (MCV) requirements. The implementation dates for Phase II are still to be determined.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
China's definition of EEP is very broad, ranging from whole products to components/parts to materials. It also covers a vast range of product categories, from electronic radar products, electronic communication products, broadcasting and television products, computer products, household electronic appliances, electronic surveying instruments, to specialized electronic products. HPE's products are covered by China RoHS 2 labeling requirements.
Typically you will find the EEP Pollution Control Mark located with the other regulatory/agency labels on the product.
For purposes of China RoHS 2 labeling, the majority of HPE brand products will carry the “EPUP” logo. This is because China does not recognize the EU RoHS material application exemptions for purposes of labeling.
To effectively and consistently manage the requirements to meet the China RoHS 2 Legislation, HPE spare parts sold in the People's Republic of China (in support of HPE Products), will take a standardized and conservative approach. As a result, the spare part documentation may state a shorter EPUP than that stated on the product or in the China RoHS 2 user documentation that accompanied the product.
