RoHS is an EU directive for the restriction of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
In the UK RoHS-II regulation became effective on January, 2nd 2013. The RoHS-III regulation became effective on July, 22nd 2019. The main differences between RoHS, RoHS-II and RoHS-III regulations are:
- The scope of the directive was enlarged.
- CE compliance declarations must include the RoHS-II regulation.
