European Commission Notifies WTO of 4 New RoHS Substances
December 23, 2014｜Written by GreenSoft Technology, Inc.
The European Commission has notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) of four new substances that are to be added to the Annex II List of Restricted Substances under the RoHS-2 Directive.
The proposed date of adoption for the restrictions is February/March 2015, but electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) manufacturers will have a few more years to prepare, as the transition period will end on July 22, 2019 for all EEE products except medical devices and monitoring and control instruments. The transition period for medical devices and monitoring and control instruments ends July 22, 2021.
The four substances, which are normally used in plastics, are: Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
Justification for the restriction of each substance is available on the official notification filed with the WTO.
