Your substances


The RoHS consultation on the renewal of nine exemptions (Pack 22) has been updated

New documents have been posted on the platform of the current consultation concerning the renewal of nine exemptions (RoHS Pack 22). This includes:

(*) Applications submitted by the Umbrella Project now include both the application originally posted at the begining of the consultation and an additional one concerning the renewal of the exemption for RoHS Annex I category 11. The latter applications are similar in content to the original ones, but request the renewal for this category that was not included in the original applications. These applications have been added to the assessment to the request of the Commission and following a request from the Umbrella Project and mean that Cat. 11 shall be considered in the assessment of all exemptions, with possible consequences to the validity of exemptions to EEE of this category;

(*) Responses to clarification questions from all applicants;

(*) An updated document with the summary of the main argumentation and with questions for stakeholders has been prepared for each of the exemption under assessment and uploaded - for most exemptions, additional questions have been added to the initial questions posted at the begining of the consultation;

(*) A few contributions have already been received and have been uploaded on the respective exemption page. This concerns Exemption 6(c) and Exemption 7(c)-I.

We encourage stakeholders to check the newly available information and take it into consideration in their contribution.

The consultation is scheduled to continue until 03 March 2021. Please submit your contributions at the latest by 03 March 2021.
