Implementation of RoHS directive in the member states is getting off the ground…very slowly

On 09, Jan 2013 | In News @en | By KuL-Blog

After Estonia has published the new national RoHS legislation already in 2011, some countries like Austria, Latvia or UK have followed until the end of 2012 and adapted the new legislation in time. According to the directive 2011/65/EU, published on 1 July 2011, the transposition should have been taken place until 2 January 2013, i.e. many member states are late.

Although the requirements set by the directive are almost clear and most discussions have been handled on EU-level, there might be slight changes within the different national legislations. Especially the interpretation of the transition period for 2019 or labelling requirements show a variety amongst the legislations that have already been published.
