- Certification description:
- The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, (RoHS 1), short for
Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical
and electronic equipment, was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union. The
RoHS 1 directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and became
a law in each member state. This directive restricts (with exceptions) the use
of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical
equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets
for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem
of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste. RoHS 2002/95/EC was replaced by Dir. 2011/65/EU,
3 January 2013.
