The Directive 2011/65/EU on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS II), replacing Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS I), targets Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) in order to avoid adverse impacts on human health and the environment.
Diamond Electronics Ltd are fully aware of the requirements of the RoHS Directive 2011/65/ EU in the EU. Roles and obligations have been identified by Diamond to the best of our knowledge.
Diamond Electronics Ltd, as a distributor, does not certify compliance with RoHS on behalf of the original manufacturers, since we do not control the manufacturing process of the products we supply. (See Note 1)
RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU was amended by the Directive 2015/863/EU, which was published in June 2015. Four additional substances (phthalates) were added to Annex II of the original RoHS Directive.
The provisions regarding the restriction of the newly added substances in ‘Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ apply after 22.07.2019. For medical devices, monitoring and control instruments there is an additional two-year grace period.
