A practical Guide to understanding the specific obligations of Recast Directive 2011/65/EU on the Restriction of the use of Certain Hazardous Substances in EEE (RoHS II)”, update of September 2012.
This updated Guide on the Recast RoHS Directive aims at explaining the main changes and obligations arising from the recast, especially in the following areas:
  • Scope
  • Substance restrictions
  • Exemptions
  • Alignment of the Directive with the New Legislative Framework
  • Terms and Definitions
  • Review
  • Transposition
  • Comitology
Its update of September 2012 provides to readers the common understanding of the Directive of the affected European manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment in the context of the Commission’s consultation on the draft RoHS2-FAQ Guidance Document of 15 June 2012 and its announced possible revision before 3 January 2013. 
This Orgalime Guide and its update is to be considered as complementary to other Orgalime Guides on the WEEE and RoHS Directives. These other Orgalime Guides remain valid until repeal of the initial RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC taking effect from 3rd January 2013.
Orgalime's new updated RoHS Guide represents a living document that may be updated in the future according to implementation progress.
