What is RoHS 2?

RoHS 2 Definition

RoHS 2 is the EU directive 2011/65/EU which restricts the use of certain hazardous substances (lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers) in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). RoHS 2 replaced the previous RoHS directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS 1) in July 2011. Compared to RoHS 1, RoHS 2 not only expanded the scope of products covered, but also imposed new obligations on EEE manufacturers to prepare EU declaration of conformity and affix CE markings on finished products.
