RoHS 2011/65/EU + (EU)2015/863 and EU custom’s enforcement the week ending February 28, 2020

I get an email from RAPEX every Friday morning that details products stopped in customs in the EU for various issues. These are not all of the of the products stopped, just the most dangerous ones. RAPEX is an acronym for Rapid Alert System for dangerous non-food products.

Last Friday, February 28, 2020 I opened the email in the morning, which sent me to this link, and started scrolling like I do every week. I immediately noted that there appeared to be a larger than normal number of products stopped for non-compliance to RoHS 2011/65/EU.

This link is one example of a product stopped for RoHS non-conformity: Link.

The RAPEX email and alert is meant to tell everyone in receipt that the subject products are dangerous and should be removed from use immediately. Of course you do not want to end up in one of these alerts!
