The EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. BiPRO GmbH has been commissioned by DG ENV to provide technical assistance regarding the evaluation of applications and the related stakeholder consultations, for the following two new exemptions:
- Cadmium in video cameras designed for use in environments exposed to ionising radiation and
- Lead and cadmium in PVC profiles of electric windows and doors
The consultation for the two applications for exemption will be open until Friday, December 9, 2016. Questionnaires to the stakeholders containing targeted questions for the consultation have been drafted for each of the exemption requests and available for each exemption request respectively here.
A dedicated project website has been established here.
