European Council to rubber stamp RoHS revision with devices included in scope

This article was originally published in RAJ Devices

Executive Summary

The European Parliament has voted to include medical devices in the revised version of the RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC), which restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The new directive will likely take effect next year following full approval and official publication. Member states will then have 18 months to transpose it into national law; manufacturers will have eight years within which to comply with the new restrictions1.
