Spare parts for category 9
Here we address a popular question in respect of spare parts under the RoHS Recast Directive.
Spare parts for category 9 equipment are covered by Article 4.4 d and e. These spare parts will not need to comply if used to repair EEE that was placed on the market before its category was included in scope, so for category 9, this is either 2014 (consumer) or 2017 (industrial).
The open scope has no impact on spare parts in 2019.
