The European Commission is inviting interested parties to submit their comments and concerns related to EU legislation on the following topics:
- The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive: This is merely a generic request for feedback. The Commission will be releasing a revised RoHS Directive in 2021 and is, therefore, offering a chance for industry to have its say on the effectiveness of the RoHS Directive in its current form, so that, in its words, the revisions to the Directive are able to strike a balance in protecting the rights and interests of all the affected stakeholder groups.
The purpose of this consultation is to gather views on how the restriction of hazardous substances in electronic products works in practice: what works well, what does not and why. Any submissions should be prepared and submitted in the manner prescribed on the consultation page. The last date for submissions is 6 December 2019.
