1. Update of Exemption Provisions in Appendix III to EU RoHS 2.0 Directive


On February 5, 2019, the European Commission issued directives (EU) 2019/169, (EU) 2019/2019/170, (EU) 2019/171, (EU) 2019/171, (EU) 2019/172, (EU) 2019/173, (EU) 2012019/174, (EU) 2012019/175, (EU) 2019/176, (EU) 2019/177, (EU) 2019/178, 2019/178, updating nine items (7 (c) -II, 7 (c) -II, 7 (c) -IV, 8 (b), 15, 18 (EU) 2019/171, 2019/171, (EU) 2019/171, (EU) 2019/171, (EU) 2019/171, (Add an exemption clause in Annex III to RoHS 2.0 Directive (Article 42). The update covers the applications of lead and cadmium in specific materials, including lead in specific dielectric ceramics, solders, phosphor catalysts, printing ink and cadmium in specific electrical contacts and printing ink. This revision subdivides the use of some exemption materials and adds new exemption periods according to subdivision categories. The above directive will come into force 20 days after its issuance. In response to the nine updated provisions, the member states are required to implement the directive formally on March 1, 2020, and the new article 42 will be implemented on July 22, 2019.
