Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment

Review of the list of restricted substances

The European Commission launched two studies with the objectives of:

  • developing a methodology to identify and assess substances based on the criteria in Recital 10 and Article 6(1) and 6(2) of RoHS 2,
  • assessing the substances addressed in Recital 10 of RoHS 2 and other substances with a view to their future restriction.

The first project was launched in 2012; the final report was published in 2013. The second study was launched and published in 2014.
