RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and subsequent amendments

Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive

The Directive RoHS2 (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) (Dir.2011/65 /EC and subsequent amendments) relating to restrictions on use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 1 July 2011 and abrogates the previous Directive 2002/95/EC and subsequent amendments on 3 January 2013. In Italy this directive has been adopted with the Decree. n.27 of March 4, 2014, published in the Official Journal of the EC n.62 of 15 March 2014. The RoHS2 restricts the use of certain substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in the production of electrical and electronic equipment and for the first time imposes the requirement of CE marking for EEE compliant to this Directive. Another great innovation introduced by RoHS2 is the modification of the definition of EEE and the constant updating substances restricted to use.

The scope of the new RoHS2 directive has been extended to new categories of product, despite of the previous Directive, with different due dates:

July 22, 2014 - Medical devices, monitoring and control instruments
July 22, 2016 - Medical devices for in vitro diagnosis
July 22, 2017 - Monitoring and control industrial instruments
July 22, 2019 - Other electrical and electronic equipment not included in the above categories
