The RoHS 1 directive took effect on 1 July 2006 , and is required to be enforced and became a law in each member state. This directive restricts (with exceptions) the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment.
All applicable products in the EU market since July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. Directive 2011/65/EU was published in 2011 by the EU, which is known as RoHS-Recast or RoHS 2. RoHS 2 includes a CE-marking directive, with RoHS compliance now being required for CE marking of products.
On 4 June 2015, the EU Commission has published a new Directive (EU) 2015/863 to amend Annex II to EU RoHS 2 (Directive 2011/65/EU) to add the following 4 phthalates to the list of restricted substances
The expanded list for RoHS 3 is thus as follows:
Cadmium (0.01 %),
Lead (0.1 %),
Mercury (0.1 %),
Hexavalent chromium (0.1 %),
Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) (0.1 %),
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) (0.1 %),
Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) (0.1 %),
Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) (0.1 %),
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) (0.1 %) and,
Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) (0.1 %).
Certain applications may be exempt from RoHS restriction if it is technically or scientifically impracticable to prohibit the use of certain hazardous substances at present.
