Renewal Requests Submitted for Large Number of EU RoHS-2 Exemptions
However, a large number of renewal applications for exemptions were submitted to the European Commission between October 2014 and January 2015.
Under the RoHS-2 Directive, exemptions remain in effect until a decision is made on renewal applications that have been submitted. The European Commission states their anticipated time frame to make a decision on each exemption extension is 18-24 months from the application date.
Therefor the exemptions with submitted renewal requests will likely remain exempt through 2016. However, the European Commission has said they will announce an updated time frame in second quarter 2016. That announcement will tell us exactly when the Commission expects to make their decisions on the renewal applications, and therefor how much longer each exemption remains valid until it is either renewed or expires.
We will let you know when the European Commission makes their announcement this year. The list of renewal applications for exemptions can be found here.
