RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and EU 2015/863
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive was revised as “RoHS II”. The Directive 2011/65/EU was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 1 July 2011. The new directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment replaces the old Directive 2002/95/EC. All European member states must implement the new directive by national law before January 2, 2013, and also implement the new extended Directive EU 2015/863 from June 4, 2015.
The key elements of RoHS II are as follows:
Annex II defines the tolerated maximum concentration of six substances in homogeneous materials. The provision applies to: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
Manufacturers must issue an EU declaration of conformity as set forth in Annex VI.
A CE mark is required for all electrical equipment covered by RoHS II.
All EU member states have to implement the new directive by national law before January 2, 2013.
