Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment 2002/95/EC
| commonly referred to as the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive or RoHS) was adopted in February 2003
by the European Union. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become
law in each member state. This directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various
types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part
of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste.
