Why and what is RoHS ?

After years of debate, technical arguments and delays, Directive 2002/95/EC on the Restriction of certain Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS - often misinterpreted as RoSH) and Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) are finally in force across all 25 EU member states, together with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

The legislation came and went on July 1st with no real dramas or fireworks, these look likely to come later as the various enforcement agencies across Europe shift from their current educational and supportive role, to one of less tolerant policing.

Whether you're new to RoHS or simply keeping abreast of the latest developments the information contained on this web site, and the complimentary services we offer will guide you towards compliance or assist you in applying the myriad complex exemptions.

A detailed Impact Assessment will clearly categorise your equipment with regards to both RoHS and WEEE Directives, revealing any applicable exemptions, which are supported with detailed legislative evidence by experienced consultants.
