BRUSSELS — Comments are sought to a draft of the guidelines for using and complying to the RoHS Directive 2001/65/EU (RoHS 2).
The FAQ document is intended to help interpret provisions of RoHS 2 in order to ensure compliance with the Directive’s requirements.
RoHS 2 went into effect July 21, 2011, and requires Member States to transpose the provisions into their respective national laws by Jan. 2, 2013. At the 2011 RoHS/WEEE Technical Adaptation Committee meeting, the Commission and Member States established an official working group, pursuant to the TAC rules of procedure, for the preparation of a RoHS 2 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. The working group completed its work in June.
The draft FAQ is here. Comments are due by Sept. 14 to
