  • Folks,

    Denmark, Finland and Sweden did a sweep of electronics products to check for RoHS compliance. Twenty two out of 152 products were non compliant....almost 15%.  Yikes!  With violation rates this high I would expect to see more investigations. Most violations were for lead in plastic or in solder joints.  Only one case appears to be going forth for prosecution.
