RoHS 2011/65/EU – New Restrictions July 2019

RoHS 2011/65/EU presently requires compliance for electrical and electronic equipment to these six substances indicated in Annex II:

We note that RoHS 2011/65/EU was amended by Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2015/863 in March of 2015. The new restrictions are highlighted in yellow and indicated in the Annex of (EU) 2015/863 which revises Annex II of 2015/65/EU:

The date for the new restrictions to take place is July 22, 2019. However, we note that for some product categories there are delays to the enforcement of the new restrictions for two years. See paragraph 1 of the revised Annex II:

This means that the above indicated equipment can continue to meet the restriction levels for the original list of six restricted substances until July 22, 2021. Otherwise, you must comply by this July.
