On 11, Dec 2019 | In News @en | By Lisa Schmidt

The transition period for compliance with certain requirements under the United Arab Emirates Cabinet Decision No. 10/2017, the so-called UAE RoHS, will end beginning 2020. As of January 1, the following obligations will apply:

  • Extension of scope: The “open” scope will include all electrical and electronic products according to Annex 1, point 11. In addition, the substance restriction for Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE will also apply to medical devices, diagnostic medical devices and monitoring and control instruments, including industrial monitoring and control instruments.
  • Substance restrictions for DEHP, BBP, DBP and DIBP: As in the EU, the four phthalates are restricted in electrical and electronic products with a maximum concentration value of 0,1 percent tolerated by weight in homogeneous materials. However, medical devices, as well as monitoring and control instruments will not be affected by the new substance restriction on the date mentioned.
