What is "EU RoHS 2"?

EU RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU, also known as "RoHS Recast") replaced the original iteration of EU RoHS (2002/95/EC) in January of 2013. The same six substances are listed in both directives, however there were a number of additional compliance requirements introduced in 2011/65/EU. Below is a high-level summary of those additions:

  • EU RoHS 2 now falls under the CE Mark
  • Associated labeling and documentation requirements
  • Exemptions are expiring
  • Any exemptions being used must be disclosed
  • New substances can be added
