EU Parliament Adopts RoHS-2 Changes on Secondary Market Operations
EU Votes to Permit the Reselling of EEE and Spare Parts for RoHS-2
On October 3rd, the European Parliament voted to adopt proposed amendments to EU RoHS-2.
Under the current RoHS-2 Directive, both the first placement of an electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) product on the market and secondary market operations are prohibited after July 22, 2019.
Now the newly adopted amendments will permit the resale of EEE and spare parts that were put on the market before the respective substances were prohibited. This will permit the repair and resell of refurbished EEE products.
The changes will enter into force 20 days after they are published in the Official Journal of the European Union, and more details will be known at that time. Subscribe to our blog to be notified when the official decision is published.
The last prior change to EU RoHS-2 was in June 2017.
