Expert analysis of electronics-related legislation and compliance requirements, such as RoHS, REACH and WEEE, from industry expert Gary Nevison of Farnell.
Very latest on the RoHS recast
The Council of Ministers working group has continued to discuss the scope of the RoHS recast, substance restrictions and exemptions. The European Parliament Environment Committee (ENVI) has also had extensive discussions led by Member of the European Parliament and rapporteur Gill Evans. ENVI has also discussed scope, exclusions and substance restrictions but has also considered many of the definitions.
If adopted before the end of 2010 this could possibly enter into force during 2012, earlier than expected.
