RoHS / WEEE Resources

The July 1, 2006 deadline for RoHS compliance has come and gone. As with the Y2K run-up scare, there was so much hype and propaganda in the preceding years that by the time the event actually occurred, there was very little carnage left behind to clean up. Still, there are new companies coming online every day that need to learn how to comply, so this resource will help you get to where you need to be.
