As of 22 July 2019, electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) falling into category 11 of EU Directive 2011/65/EU and being placed on the market before that date, can still be made available on the market according to the new Directive 2017/2102 which entered into force on December 11, 2017. This means that the respective products of category 11 (EEE which is not covered by categories 1 to 10 and which was not in scope so far) can be sold off beyond July 22, 2019.
Besides, Directive 2017/2102 has revised the provisions of Directive 2011/65/EU in some relevant aspects:
• reuse of spare parts
• extension of exemptions from substance restrictions
• adapted date of decision regarding the renewal of an exemption
• duration of exemptions for devices of category 11
Regarding the reuse of spare parts, the following applies: Beginning with the date at which devices newly placed on the market must comply with the substance restrictions, spare parts may be recovered from EEE already placed on the market before and used in EEE for a transition period of 10 years.
Member states have to harmonize the new Directive with their national regulations until June 12, 2019.
