Severe industry concerns over proposals for substantial changes to the RoHS Scope

Significant changes to the scope of the Commission’s RoHS recast proposal, which fundamentally focuses on consumer goods recovered from household waste, are being considered by the European Parliament and several Member States’ delegations in the Council without any impact assessment. The proposals under discussion would bring in nearly all capital goods which use electrical and electronic equipment, for example all the electrical and electronic equipment in trains, trucks, cars, planes, power plants of all types, petrochemical and other industrial installations, subways, elevators, material handling equipment, etc… European manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment consider this proposal as particularly objectionable, in view of the EU institutions commitment to respect ‘Better Regulation’.
