RoHS Information

The Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment 2002/95/EC[1] (commonly referred to as the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive or RoHS) was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become law in each member state. This directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste

The new Directive 2011/65/EU was adopted in July 2011 by the European Union and should become law in each member state in latest January 2013.

Furthermore, there have been some amendments and innovations in EU regulations which concern us as well:

A. A case in the European Court of Justice against the RoHS exemption has been decided against Deca-BDE and its use must be phased out by July 1, 2008

B. The Regulation EU 2006/122/EG announces a ban of use of PFOS (Perfluoroctansulfonate).
