EU RoHS and Battery Components

Question: My company makes products that are in scope of the EU RoHS Directive. Our products contain a battery pack, made up of a battery and battery cable. The battery and cable are supplied to us as a single unit. I know the batteries are not in scope of the EU RoHS Directive, but what about the attached cable?

Answer: Only the battery itself is out of scope. The cable, as well as any connectors, solder, etc., all remain in scope of the EU RoHS Directive.
