Basics and requirement
The RoHS- and WEEE-directives are valid in the European Community. They rule the placing on the market and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment within the EC with regard to burden.
The EC-directive 2002/95/EG on the restriction of certain substances in electrical and electronic equipment dated 27 January 2003, referred to as RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), rules the concentrations of substances as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and brominated flame retardants for electrical and electronic equipment that are put into operation from the 1 July 2006 and after.
In connection with the RoHS-directive, the EC-directive 2002/96/EG dated 27 January, referred to as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), has been adopted. The priority objective of the WEEE is the avoidance and reduction of electrical and electronical equipment as well as their re-use, recycling and utilization. Stationary equipments and their components are outside the scope of EC-directive 2002/96/EG.
The regulations of the WEEE-directive are added in the Electrical and Electronical Equipment Act – “ElektroG”) to German law.
