Directive 2002/95/EC, also known as the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulation, is a product-level compliance rule restricting the use of specific hazardous elements found in electrical and electronic devices (EEE) developed initially in the European Union. All items applicable in the EU after July 1st, 2006, must abide by RoHS standards. With a few specific exceptions, a product must not include more of the prohibited components lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) than is authorized to be deemed RoHS compliant. The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and raise issues about occupational exposure during the recycling and production processes.
This law affects many product manufacturers, importers, distributors, and authorized representatives. Products that fall under this category include power tools, toys, consumer electronics, and household appliances.
