Objective of the consultation



The RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC) (RoHS 1) has been recasted and has now become Directive 2011/65/EU that entered into force on 21 July 2011, repealing Directive 2002/95/EC on 3 January 2013. Pursuant to Article 6(1), a review and amendment of Annex II is to be considered by the Commission before 22 July 2014, and periodically thereafter.
In preparation for the 2014 review substance Dossiers have been prepared by the Austrian Umweltbundesamt GmbH for HBCDD (brominated flame retardant), DEHP, BBP and DBP (3 phthalate plasticisers), as well a prioritisation of other substances to be reviewed in the future. DG Environment of the European Commission has commissioned this project to provide additional information concerning a further substance to be assessed as a candidate for addition to Annex 2 of the RoHS Directive (DIBP) as well as prioritisation of a first shortlist of substances.
