RoHS Article 2.2
Article 2.2 was discussed recently at the 3rd Stakeholder meeting of the RoHS Impact Assessment in Brussels.
Article 2.2 states that equipment added to scope as a result of the RoHS Recast (2011/65/EU) can be “made available” in the European Union until 22 July 2019. This means that any such products cannot be sold, leased, loaned or given away after this date, including second hand or hire equipment, if they contain RoHS restricted substances.
Looking on the radar this will affect category 8 and 9 products that will fall in to scope from various dates starting in July 2014.
