The public consultation on RoHS review is now open until 2 June 2022.
The purpose of this consultation is to collect information and views from stakeholders on how the RoHS Directive could be improved in order to maintain its relevance and increase its efficiency. The evaluation of the Directive flagged as such potential areas for improvement:
- the exemption process,
- the process of reviewing the list of restricted substances,
- the alignment of RoHS to other EU legislative frameworks (e.g. the more horizontal Regulation on chemicals, REACH) and the European Green Deal objectives, and in particular the CEAP, the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, the Zero pollution action plan and the Sustainable Products Initiative.
