All 8 categories of electrical and electronic products (EEE) entering the EU market must comply with the directives of RoHS 2.0 (2011/65/EU, Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substance in electrical and electronic equipment) and WEEE (2002/96/EC, Waste Electronics and Electrical Equipment). The main objective of those directives is to restrict the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products in order to protect human health and ensure the reasonable recycling and treatment of waste to protect the environment. Those directives apply to all equipment with a voltage rating not exceeding 1,000V AC and 1,500V DC, which are included in the list of 8 categories of EEE, including electric light bulbs and household luminaries
EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive
The RoHS Directive took effect in the European Union on July 1, 2006, requiring the restricted use of 6 chemical substances (Pb/Cd/Hg/Cr6/PBB/PBDE) in electric and electronic products circulating in the EU market. The directive was updated on July 1,2011, and RoHS was officially included in the declaration of CE marking. In the EU Directive 2015/863 issued in the official Gazette on June 4,2015, 4 phosphonates (DEHP/BBP/DBP/DiBP) were officially included in the control items. The four newly added phosphates are commonly found in plasticizers, dyes, pigments, paints, adhesives and lubricants. If today’s electronic products have the above-mentioned applications, they should all be considered in the risk assessment of homogeneous components.
REACH Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) List
The European Union’s new chemical policy “ REACH” , a regulatory regulation that includes chemical registration, evaluation, licensing and restriction, passed the final vote of the European Council on December 18,2006 and has been officially promulgated since October 9,2008. By June 2020, 209 projects have been announced for substances of high concern.
The EU Directive 2006/122/EC restricts the use of the chemical PFOS, Member states must implement relevant regulations in accordance with the directive before December 27, 2007.The ban will take effect on June 27,2008.
Restrict of the use and market sales of PFOS products. It is not allowed to sell PFOS as a constituent substance or element with a concentration or mass equal to or more than 0.005%(50ppm).
Restrict the use of PFOS in finished products and semi-finished products. It is not allowed to sell finished products, semi-finished and parts that contain PFOS concentration or mass equal to or more than 0.1% (1000ppm).
PFOA may also be restricted in the future.
