(RoHs Compliance)

 

 

RoHS (Pb-Free) Overview.

In December 2002, the European Union Parliament approved the content of two directives to better control the management of waste electronic equipment. The two directives are the Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and the Restriction of Hazardous substances (RoHS). The WEEE addresses the collection and treatment requirements of waste electronic equipment for the member countries. The RoHS sets phase-out dates for the use of lead (Pb) and several other materials contained in electronic products. The RoHS states that the targeted materials shall no longer be contained in the electronic products above certain limits unless there is an exemption provided in the rule.

Although RoHs is a European Union (EU) Directive, manufacturers of EEE outside Europe must also abide by this legislation if the equipment they produce is ultimately imported into a EU member state.

Details of the legislation can be found from the below link:


RoHs Directive 2002/95/EC

WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC

ELV Directive 2000/53/EC
