Main Priorities & Proposals for further proceedings on RoHS Recast

Published:
19 July, 2010
Policies and Issues:
Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)

On 10 June 2010, the Environment Committee of the European Parliament has adopted the Report of Rapporteur Evans on the Commission proposal for a recast Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS).  The Environment Council has presented its progress report on the issue on 11 June 2010.  We understand that the institutions have agreed to enter into discussions on a possible first reading agreement.

Considering that several substantial proposals for modifications to the initial Commission proposal are suggested by the EP or the Council, Orgalime is highly concerned with the intention to finalise discussions in first reading and invites the institutions to take the necessary time to arrive at quality legislation, which is workable and enforceable in practice, and to particularly consider the comments and proposals included in this document in its further proceedings.
