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.
