RoHS Directive

The RoHS Directive refers to Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
This directive prohibited the sale of any new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than the allowable levels* of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB (polybrominated biphenyl), or PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ether) after July 1, 2006.


The purpose of this Directive is to approximate the laws of the Member States on the restrictions of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and to contribute to the protection of human health and the environmentally sound recovery and disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment.
