"Adaptation to Scientific and Technical Progress under Directive 2011/65/EU" – Technical evaluation of requests for new exemptions and/or review or renewal of existing exemptions
The Commission frequently receives requests from industry for applications to be exempted from the substance restrictions of Directive 2011/65/EU. These requests need to be evaluated in order to assess whether they fulfil the requirements mentioned in Article 5(1)(a) of the Directive.
Information on the assessment preparatory activities including the stakeholders' consultations can be found on the RoHS adaptation page.
All scientific reports, including those for the RoHS 1 amendments carried out in 2009–2011, are available on the project entry page. Reports published since the entry into force of RoHS 2 are available here:
