What is the reason for implementing the RoHS Directive?
RoHS should be considered in association with the WEEE Directive. Their objectives are jointly to improve environmental performance at all stages in a product’s life cycle. Some of the materials used in electronics can present environmental and health hazards during manufacturing or at ‘end of life’ disposal. The EU has therefore taken steps to restrict the use of these materials (RoHS) and encourage the safe disposal or re-use of electrical equipment (WEEE).
