Manufacturers of monitoring and control equipment are seeking new exemptions under the revised RoHS directive on hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. This product group was previously excluded from RoHS.

The requests for exemptions include the use of lead in glass electronic components and fluorescent tubes and electronic ceramic parts. The other two requests are for lead alloys in internal electrical connections and the use of mercury to illuminate liquid crystal displays.

Stakeholders consultation on exemptions from the substance restrictions in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS Directive) involves:

  • Exemption request 17a "Lead in glass of electronic components and fluorescent tubes, or in electronic ceramic parts (including dielectric ceramic capacitors) used in industrial monitoring & control instruments (only sub-category 9 industrial)", exemption to expire in 2024
  • Exemption request 18a "Lead used in compliant pin connector systems for use in industrial monitoring and control instruments (only sub-category 9 industrial)", exemption to expire in 2024
  • Exemption request 20a "Mercury in cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for back-lighting liquid crystal displays not exceeding 5 mg per lamp used in industrial monitoring and control instruments (only sub-category 9 industrial)"
