December 08, 2014｜Written by GreenSoft Technology, Inc.
The European Commission is currently accepting remarks as part of a consultation exercise on two RoHS exemption requests. The deadline for submissions is January 9, 2015.
Registered stakeholders, listed here, are invited to submit their comments by e-mail to email@example.com or by mail to the address listed here.
The exemption requests are:
2014-1: Cadmium Anodes in Hersch cells for high-sensitivity oxygen sensors
2014-2: Lead in solders used to make electrical connections to temperature measurement sensors designed to be used periodically at temperature below -150C.
These requests for exemption from the substance restrictions of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS-2) will be evaluated on the basis of the criteria for exemptions in Art. 5 (1) (a) RoHS 2.
