November 24, 2010, the European Parliament voted on the RoHS recast. RoHS II is going to come into force in the beginning of 2011 and needs to be transposed into national law by the member states of the European Union within 18 month after publication.
RoHS II affects further branches and products and will lead to new obligations for the EEE industry.
Massive changes in the scope of RoHS as well as in the controlling and enforcement will hit industry in the years ahead.
The combination of the REACH regulation with its growing candidate list with the new RoHS directive makes a comprehensive, product-related management for toxic substances indispensable.
