RoHS-2 Changes on Secondary Market Operations Now Official Under EU Law
Reselling of Certain EEE and Spare Parts for RoHS-2 Now Permitted in EU
In October 2017 we reported that the European Parliament voted to adopt proposed amendments to EU RoHS-2 with regards to secondary market operations. Those amendments have now been made official under EU law.
Previously, both the first placement of an electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) product on the market and secondary market operations were prohibited after July 22, 2019.
Now the 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 amendments were published in the Official Journal of the European Union on November 21, 2017, and took effect 20 days after the date of publishing, on December 11, 2017.
