RoHS and WEEE Updates

  • Folks,

    Loyal reader Carl pointed out some proposed changes to WEEE/RoHS:
    1. Medical and monitoring devices will be included in RoHS, likely with far out dates
    2. Priority Substances ala REACH may be included in RoHS
    3 A CE (Consultants Europe) label may be required for RoHS. Ouch! From a cost perspective.
    4. The 4 kg per person target for recycling will be revisited.
    The first article is by Steve Bush, the second by CyberMedia India Online, and the last by PCB007.
    With the recent closing of REACH registration, it makes for an interesting time.
