The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2015/863/EU, RoHS 3, short for Directive on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment, was published in 2015 by the EU. RoHS 3 adds four additional hazardous substances (phthalates) to the list of six materials in RoHS 2.
RoHS 3 becomes effective July 22, 2019.
On January 21 2016, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) published its final revised version of the Administrative Measures for the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products (known as China RoHS 2). The new regulation came into force on July 1, 2016.
These Directives and Measures are 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.
