RoHS Guidance Re-issued

The British Government is awaiting a formal notification of the adoption of the Commission Decision establishing the RoHS Directive's maximum concentration values.

The Department of Trade and Industry has issued a revised version of the draft non-statutory guidance first published in July 2004. The values given in the following paragraph are subject to adoption by the European Commission and publication in the Official Journal. This adoption may not be confirmed until the autumn of 2005 and will be reflected in the final version of the RoHS Regulations. For the purposes of the RoHS Regulations, a maximum concentration value of up to 0.1% by weight in homogeneous materials for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE and of up to 0.01% by weight in homogenous materials for cadmium will be permitted in the manufacture of new EEE. 'Homogeneous material' means a material that cannot be mechanically. Read the full Government Guidance Notes here (PDF)
