Commission waves a red WEEE/RoHS flag under industry noses.

In its session this Wednesday, the College of Commissioners has adopted proposed amendments on two core legislative instruments affecting European manufacturers of electrical and electronic appliances, namely the Directive on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and a Directive on substance restrictions in such appliances (RoHS).


While the electrical engineering and electronics industry have already questioned the need for revising the existing legislation at all barely two years after the Directives have been enacted in the last member state, the industry finds that the proposals are even more ill conceived than were the original Directives.
