In July 2019, Oeko-Institut published the final report for the “Study to assess socio-economic impact of substitution of certain mercury based lamps currently benefiting of RoHS 2 exemptions in Annex III” (Baron et al. 2019) (hereafter referred to as “2019 SEA study”). This study had been contracted in 2017 by the European Commission as a follow up to the “Study to assess renewal requests for 29 RoHS 2 Annex III exemptions [no. l(a to e -lighting purpose), no. l(f - special purpose), no. 2(a), no. 2(b)(3), no. 2(b)(4), no. 3, no. 4(a), no. 4(b), no. 4(c), no. 4(e), no. 4(f), no. 5(b), no. 6(a), no. 6(b), no. 6(c), no. 7(a), no. 7(c) - I, no. 7(c) - II, no. 7(c) - IV, no. 8(b), no. 9, no. 15, no. 18b, no. 21, no. 24, no. 29, no. 32, no. 34, no.37]” carried out by the Oeko-Institut in 2016 which recommended inter alia a phase-out of exemptions for certain mercury-based lamps. The goal of the 2019 SEA study was to assess possible socioeconomic impacts related to the substitution of these mercury-based lamps.
